Eastern Cous Empria

Population1.945 billion



The Confederacy of Eastern Cous Empria is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.945 billion Eastern Cous Emprians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eledyn. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Eastern Cous Emprian economy, worth 298 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 153,540 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Boys who take just one date to the high school prom are called 'losers', builders across Eastern Cous Empria are blocked up with orders for new public loos, the Eastern Cous Emprian Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, and elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume. Crime is totally unknown. Eastern Cous Empria's national animal is the eel, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Eastern Cous Empria is ranked 5,061st in the world and 312th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 93.96 on the Human Development Index.
