LeaderEmperor August II


The Empire of Felora is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor August II with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, compulsory military service, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 962 million Felorans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mellingham. The average income tax rate is 48.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Feloran economy, worth 135 trillion Zenis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 140,362 Zenis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's green cities are indeed concrete jungles, the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, drill sergeants yell in the ears of bespectacled nerds in cybermilitary "reboot camps", and Felorans incessantly needle their doctors for relief. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Felora's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Felora is ranked 32,723rd in the world and 1,646th in The North Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,180.23 Tourists Per Hour.
