LeaderKing Robert I of the House Baratheon


The High Court Justice of Ebonhand is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Robert I of the House Baratheon with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 10.05 billion Ebonhandians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greywolfe. The average income tax rate is 48.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ebonhandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,465 trillion Denars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 245,327 Denars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Racial and religious segregation has become rife as the various groups are loath to mingle, marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams, criminal rehabilitation takes place in re-education centers, and bris parties are all the rage. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ebonhand's national animal is the Velociraptor, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Griffinism.

Ebonhand is ranked 184,254th in the world and 7,144th in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -13.38 on the Hayek Index.
