Old Emporia

Population6.97 billion

CapitalNew Rapture


The Republic of Old Emporia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Elizabeth with an even hand, and renowned for its aversion to nipples, strictly enforced bedtime, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working population of 6.97 billion Old Emporians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Rapture. The average income tax rate is 45.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Old Emporian economy, worth 772 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 110,825 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

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 180,528th in the world and 6,803rd in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.89 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
