Eastern Cous Empria

Population575 million



The Confederacy of Eastern Cous Empria is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its lack of airports, compulsory vegetarianism, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 575 million Eastern Cous Emprians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eledyn. The average income tax rate is 77.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Eastern Cous Emprian economy, worth 52.2 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 led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Retail. Average income is 90,817 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, the "blue screen of death" forces many trials to be either aborted or restarted, all new "spies" are fifteen-year-old acne-ridden kids on computers, and much of Eastern Cous Empria's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eastern Cous Empria's national animal is the Eel, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Eastern Cous Empria is ranked 204,620th in the world and 9,187th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -98.86 on the Hayek Index.
