The Confederacy of Metropiam is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, digital currency, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 813 million Metropians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.
The tiny, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Upper Echelon. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.7%.
The frighteningly efficient Metropian economy, worth 93.4 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 114,894 Credits, with the richest citizens earning 9.5 times as much as the poorest.
Royalist is the most offensive slur in the Metropian language, a traveller who once stubbed a toe on an 'Air Brancaland' flight has been offered asylum, tourists visit Metropiam to mass-moon Metropian politicians, and the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Metropiam's national animal is the Metropian four-eyed cat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
