LeaderEmperor Reinhard II


The Empire of Felora is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Reinhard II with an iron fist, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 892 million Felorans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Public Transport receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mellingham. The average income tax rate is 49.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Feloran economy, worth 112 trillion Zenis a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 126,543 Zenis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Preservative-laden Feloran cheeses will be as edible when archaeologists dig them up next millennium, economists confusingly list "fusarium rot and leaf blight" as major risk factors for monetary deflation, animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs, and wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Felora's national animal is the Falcon, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Felora is ranked 33,114th in the world and 1,842nd in The North Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 5.07 Bank.
