OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Empire of Common Territories is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Emperor JC with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.941 billion Common Territoriesians 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 the Environment receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Empire City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 49%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Woodchip Exports and Uranium Mining.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, punitive tariffs protect local industry, Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, and the judicial branch is strongly influenced by major corporations. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Common Territories's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Imperial Dollar.

Common Territories is ranked 6th in The Empire of Common Territories and 101,989th in the world for Best Weather, with -88 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
