Empa Aserium

Population2.482 billion

LeaderEmperor Asteros


The Empire of Empa Aserium is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Asteros with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, anti-smoking policies, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.482 billion Empa Aseriumians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lighthaven. The average income tax rate is 13.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Empa Aseriumian economy, worth 312 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 125,716 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The government is a clear-cut case of tyranny by majority, Emperor Asteros's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site, citizens simply have to point a weapon at a government official to get what they want, and there's a bright dawn ahead for Empa Aserium. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Empa Aserium's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Empa Aserium is ranked 1,024th in the world and 101st in the South Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 84,746 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
