The Empire of Autumn Dancer is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its ban on automobiles, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 1.725 billion Autumn Dancerians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 53.1%.

The very strong Autumn Dancerian economy, worth 102 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Basket Weaving, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 59,328 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.6 times as much as the poorest.

Pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail, ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products, and local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Autumn Dancer's national animal is the reindeer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Autumn Dancer is ranked 159,475th in the world and 84th in Shinka for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 27,825.25 Standard Monetary Units.
