The Emperium of -Emporia- is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Ether V with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 16.989 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.
The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Public Transport aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Emmperrisburg. The average income tax rate is 52.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The thriving -Emporia-ian economy, worth a remarkable 1,618 trillion Emporiums a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 95,268 Emporiums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.
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 a well-funded 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.
