The Emperium of -Emporia- is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Ether V with an even hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 15.473 billion -Emporia-ians 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.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Defence, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Public Transport receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Emmperrisburg. The average income tax rate is 77%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.
Bizarre-looking creatures called 'Electric Eyedogs' dominate wildlife preserves, the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, the nation leads Planet Maxorus Prime in per capita stalking, and murder victims' families receive windfall payouts when the murderers are executed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. -Emporia-'s national animal is the Electric Eye, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Emporium.
