Eastern Cous Empria

Population1.963 billion



The Confederacy of Eastern Cous Empria is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.963 billion Eastern Cous Emprians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

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 302 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 153,968 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Films are funded in accordance with the volume of tears shed when reading the screenplay, space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, for some reason the census focuses on daily banana ingestion and hourly quip rate, and kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents. 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 200,320th in the world and 7,707th in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.59 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
