Imperial Empress Valeria Messalina

Population141 million

CurrencyBrothel Token

The Empire of Imperial Empress Valeria Messalina is a very large, efficient nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 141 million Imperial Empress Valeria Messalinans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.4%.

The thriving Imperial Empress Valeria Messalinan economy, worth 9.44 trillion Brothel Tokens a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Soda Sales. Average income is 66,931 Brothel Tokens, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 345,104 per year while the poor average 7,076, a ratio of 48.8 to 1.

The richest citizens live in sheltered private citadels, constipated-looking politicians are uptight about potty mouths, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, and a video of Leader wearing shock-blue face paint and smashing an electric guitar in front of a frenzied crowd is on endless repeat on the nightly news. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Imperial Empress Valeria Messalina's national animal is the Bedbug, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Imperial Empress Valeria Messalina is ranked 133,834th in the world and 2nd in The Impure Land for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
