The Empire of Korean-Joseon is a huge, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 711 million Koreans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seoul. The average income tax rate is 57.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Korean economy, worth 71.0 trillion Won a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 99,829 Won, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
There's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, the weather report is the prisoners' favourite programme, the government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen, and an epidemic of unpopped kernels causes movie goers to gnash their teeth. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Korean-Joseon's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
