Empa Aserium

Population457 million



The Empire of Empa Aserium is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 457 million Empa Aseriumians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lighthaven. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.0%.

The all-consuming Empa Aseriumian economy, worth 47.9 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 104,797 Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 338,694 per year while the poor average 24,504, a ratio of 13.8 to 1.

The government pours millions of Dollars into rehabilitation programs annually, the tax department is having withdrawal symptoms, homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, and politicians who vacation in East Lebatuck lose their jobs upon their return. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Empa Aserium's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Empa Aserium is ranked 33,070th in the world and 1,233rd in the South Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 65 on the Rand Index.
