The Republic of The Wires Empire is a huge, safe nation, notable for its digital currency, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 428 million Wireans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rednick. The average income tax rate is 34.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Wirean economy, worth 38.3 trillion Wires a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 89,527 Wires, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

At the edge of the final frontier space's biggest missile platform is about to unfold, social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians, for the sake of 'public interest' news programs tell viewers how to home-make Sarin gas bombs, and rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million Wires of property damage. Crime is totally unknown. The Wires Empire's national animal is the Wirean Swamp Toad, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

The Wires Empire is ranked 102,135th in the world and 598th in 10000 Islands for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 120,109 Standard Monetary Units.
