Empa Aserium

Population2.03 billion

LeaderEmperor Asteros


The Empire of Empa Aserium is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Asteros with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, anti-smoking policies, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.03 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 Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lighthaven. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Empa Aseriumian economy, worth 265 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 130,934 Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 401,198 per year while the poor average 33,077, a ratio of 12.1 to 1.

Emperor Asteros's told that love often manifests itself through homicidal four-lettered litanies, farting etiquette is taught in schools, teenage girls worry that they'll be unpopular if their skirts aren't short enough, and the world still seems flat to some people in space. 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 35,730th in the world and 1,279th in the South Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 4,978.89 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
