Elder Realms

Population2.88 billion


The Republic of Elder Realms is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.88 billion Elder Realmsians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Administration also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 66.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Elder Realmsian economy, worth 225 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Soda Sales, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 78,341 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them, things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication, Elder Realmsian husbands are dead good at fathering kids, and corporate lawyers are joyfully combing through the new tax code for any new loopholes for their clients. Crime is totally unknown. Elder Realms's national animal is the cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Elder Realms is ranked 6,340th in the world and 317th in Osiris for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.85 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
