“An Empire built on Computers”
|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Regional Influence: Diplomat
The Empire of ElectronicDataSystems is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 24.357 billion ElectronicDataSystemsians 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 juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, Defence, and the Environment. The average income tax rate is 87%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
Drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, a cyber-war between file sharers and the music industry formats hard drives across the country, ElectronicDataSystems's Medieval Faire is renowned as one of the best in the region, and refugees from other nations are flocking to ElectronicDataSystems's border. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ElectronicDataSystems's national animal is the Furry Robotic Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Platinum Piece.
