Cochlea Attenum

Population670 million


The Empire of Cochlea Attenum is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, restrictive gun laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 670 million Cochlea Attenumians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.2%.

The very strong Cochlea Attenumian economy, worth 38.8 trillion Septims a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 57,880 Septims, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 163,384 per year while the poor average 16,413, a ratio of 10.0 to 1.

Crime is moderate, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Cochlea Attenum's national animal is the Warhorse, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Cochlea Attenum is ranked 49,606th in the world and 25th in Greater Dienstad for Most Avoided, scoring 124.19 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
