The Elite Defense Union Coalition

Population1.429 billion



The Federation of The Elite Defense Union Coalition is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by SOL with an even hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 1.429 billion Aroarans 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 medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rising. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 49.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Aroaran economy, worth 154 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 108,425 Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 329,213 per year while the poor average 27,750, a ratio of 11.9 to 1.

Children need to wear helmets and safety harnesses before mounting a carousel horse, organisations with 800 in their phone number are often raided by special forces, citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless, and historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Elite Defense Union Coalition's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Elite Defense Union Coalition is ranked 65,879th in the world and 3,204th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 60.92 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
