“There's Always a Lighthouse” Elizabeth
|Category: Left-Leaning College State|
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
Location: The North Pacific
The Republic of Old Emporia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Elizabeth with an even hand, and renowned for its aversion to nipples, ubiquitous missile silos, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, hard-working population of 5.325 billion Old Emporians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Rapture. The average income tax rate is 27.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Old Emporian economy, worth 657 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 123,547 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.
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.
