LeaderKing Aegon III of House Targaryen


The High Court Justice of Ebonhand is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King Aegon III of House Targaryen with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, daily referendums, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 13.672 billion Ebonhandians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greywolfe. The average income tax rate is 16.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ebonhandian economy, worth a remarkable 3,396 trillion Denars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 248,437 Denars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, tourists flock to see the giant stone carvings of historical leaders at Mount Rushless, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, and King Aegon III of House Targaryen's perky ego is the talk of the town. Crime is totally unknown. Ebonhand's national animal is the Velociraptor, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Griffinism.

Ebonhand is ranked 215,214th in the world and 9,957th in the South Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.72 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
