Old Emporia

Population7.002 billion

CapitalNew Rapture


The Republic of Old Emporia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Elizabeth with an even hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working population of 7.002 billion Old Emporians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Rapture. The average income tax rate is 45.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Old Emporian economy, worth 775 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 110,825 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The countryside is shrouded by wind farms, the military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles', party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", and stoned tourists don't tend to remember much about their holidays here. Crime is totally unknown. Old Emporia's national animal is the Crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Old Emporia is ranked 38,854th in the world and 1,897th in The North Pacific for Largest Governments, scoring 20.1 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
