The Modern Aristocracy of Eiffel is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by The Society Council with an even hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 5.051 billion Eiffelians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Law & Order, although Defence and Commerce are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Raxus. The average income tax rate is 90%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.
Citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, politicians accepting drinks in bars are executed for taking bribes, the government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy', and military spending is on the increase. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Eiffel's national animal is the Volus, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Siari, and its currency is the Society Note.
