Regional Influence: Sprat
Location: The Order of the Grey Wardens
The Empire of Emere is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Lyna Mahariel with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.749 billion Emereans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The enormous government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eyrie. The average income tax rate is 86.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Emerean economy, worth a remarkable 1,573 trillion Lions a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 123,427 Lions, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.
It's rumored that Marche Noire knows what the nation's generals eat for breakfast, high school band practice is often crashed by technicolor-clad ravers, blackface performers claim they are being deliberately ironic, and Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Emere's national animal is the Gryphon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
