Eastern Cous Empria

Population1.512 billion



The Confederacy of Eastern Cous Empria is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its lack of airports, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.512 billion Eastern Cous Emprians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eledyn. The average income tax rate is 93.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Eastern Cous Emprian economy, worth 220 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 145,597 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The poor are often seen pale and dizzy after selling their blood to make ends meet, high school bands practice by moonlight, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, and it is technically inaccurate to call the dead 'worm food'. Crime is totally unknown. Eastern Cous Empria's national animal is the Eel, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Eastern Cous Empria is ranked 216,733rd in the world and 9,087th in The North Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 9,900.62 Standard Monetary Units.
