Eastern Cous Empria

Population268 million



The Confederacy of Eastern Cous Empria is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 268 million Eastern Cous Emprians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded 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 69.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Eastern Cous Emprian economy, worth 15.3 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 fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is 57,253 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's best not to ask what goes into Eledyn Crispy Fried Tofu's secret blend of herbs and spices, no one over the age of 35 has the slightest clue what is going on, most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, and government workers are more efficient and more unhappy than ever. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 124,959th in the world and 5,482nd in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 56.57 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
