Old Emporia

Population3.48 billion

CapitalNew Rapture


The Republic of Old Emporia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Elizabeth with an even hand, and notable for its aversion to nipples, ubiquitous missile silos, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working population of 3.48 billion Old Emporians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Rapture. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 13.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Old Emporian economy, worth 444 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 127,682 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 9.2 times as much as the poorest.

The countryside is shrouded by wind farms, the military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles', party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", and stoned tourists don't tend to remember much about their holidays here. Crime is totally unknown. Old Emporia's national animal is the Crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Old Emporia is ranked 14,605th in the world and 816th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 81.28 on the Human Development Index.
