Regional Influence: Hegemony

Location: The Spurged Middle East


The Most Serene Republic of Ephestus is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.903 billion Ephestusians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Euphestus. The average income tax rate is 61%. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Soda Sales.

Most mothers are forced to quit their jobs to care for infants, scenic tours are unheard of after most environmental laws were abolished, ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, and military spending is on the increase. Crime is a serious problem, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Ephestus's national animal is the Harpy, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the Mesdetta.

Ephestus is ranked 2nd in The Spurged Middle East and 100,085th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -66 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
