Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Bourbon Empire of Ile Royale is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the Duc d'Orléans with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 11.396 billion Ile Royaleans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nouvelle Paris. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Ile Royalean economy, worth a remarkable 2,241 trillion Coronets a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 196,730 Coronets, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 664,710 per year while the poor average 43,065, a ratio of 15.4 to 1.

Airport security is provided by private companies, terrified neighbors cower behind concertina wire and machine gun nests, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, and it is a common belief that a sport isn't sport if there are no decapitations. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Ile Royale's national animal is the Léon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Ile Royale is ranked 176,145th in the world and 3rd in Renaissance for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 11.3 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
