New Emeryvile

Population240 million


The Commonwealth of New Emeryvile is a huge, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-working, democratic population of 240 million New Emeryvileans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 8.5%.

The New Emeryvilean economy, worth 14.6 trillion bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 60,992 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Government officials across New Emeryvile are being "encouraged" to adopt Quails to set an example for the populace, the Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy, body doubles and armed bodyguards escort witnesses to and from courtrooms, and school uniforms are compulsory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. New Emeryvile's national animal is the Quail.

New Emeryvile is ranked 30,943rd in the world and 1,426th in Lazarus for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 4,105.42 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
