OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Empire of Common Territories is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Emperor JC with an even hand, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 7.033 billion Commoners 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 government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Empire City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Common Territoriesian economy, worth 938 trillion Imperial Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 133,497 Imperial Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 386,621 per year while the poor average 36,529, a ratio of 10.6 to 1.

Military spending is on the increase, school uniforms are compulsory, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, and Animal Liberationists are regularly jailed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Common Territories's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Common Territories is ranked 6th in The Empire of Common Territories and 84,797th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.105 Stalins.
