Ferronic Empire

Population285 million

AnimalRust Mite

The Empire of Ferronic Empire is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, ritual sacrifices, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 285 million Ferronic Empireans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 41.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Ferronic Empirean economy, worth 12.2 trillion Bars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 42,781 Bars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Military funding has been stripped back, homeless people are periodically found dead upon altars to assorted deities, all recreational drugs are legal, and married couples must call each other "darling" or risk a fine. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ferronic Empire's national animal is the Rust Mite, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ferronic Empire is ranked 115,711th in the world and 18th in Uniao da Cracolandia for Nudest, with 114.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
