Eastern Cous Empria

Population312 million



The Confederacy of Eastern Cous Empria is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 312 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 70.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Eastern Cous Emprian economy, worth 20.9 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 fairly diversified, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is 66,878 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works, the countryside is shrouded by wind farms, the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, and nude art is becoming wildly popular. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 70,746th in the world and 3,169th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -14.86 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
