Elder Realms

Population2.827 billion


The Republic of Elder Realms is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.827 billion Elder Realmsians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Administration, and Environment are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 66.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Elder Realmsian economy, worth 221 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Soda Sales, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 78,341 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them, things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication, Elder Realmsian husbands are dead good at fathering kids, and corporate lawyers are joyfully combing through the new tax code for any new loopholes for their clients. Crime is totally unknown. Elder Realms's national animal is the cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Elder Realms is ranked 6,268th in the world and 327th in Osiris for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.85 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
