Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The INGSOC State of The Old English Order is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by High Chancellor Peter Creedy with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.212 billion Caldari are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New London. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 63.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Caldari economy, worth 946 trillion Pound sterlings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 224,725 Pound sterlings, with the richest citizens earning 8.1 times as much as the poorest.

Meteorologists are instantly recognizable from their luxury cars and jewelry, the Coast Guard is pioneering a quixotic program to train fish, high school boys are required to pass vigorous self-mastery and sensitivity training to graduate, and court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Old English Order's national animal is the Harrier, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is INGSOC Rationalism.

The Old English Order is ranked 16,289th in the world and 1st in Caldari State for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 5,315.4 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
