The Federal Republic of Empoleon Corporation is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 767 million Empoleon Corporationians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bahnland. The average income tax rate is 33.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Empoleon Corporationian economy, worth 90.8 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 118,437 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

There's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services, dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming, running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, and sales of pregnancy testing kits are booming. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Empoleon Corporation's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Empoleon Corporation is ranked 110,326th in the world and 36th in Soviet Democracy for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 37.42 on the Hayek Index.
