CapitalEmpotia City
LeaderPrime Minister Rye


The Republic of Empotia is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Rye with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic population of 978 million Empotians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Empotia City. The average income tax rate is 70.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Empotian economy, worth 102 trillion Euros a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 104,909 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Under love's heavy burden Prime Minister Rye sinks lower in the political right's esteem, government ministers sport new billboards that read 'Will Trade Votes for Private Members' Bill Support', drive-by spoilers are an increasingly common crime, and only adults may purchase violent video games. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Empotia's national animal is the Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Empotia is ranked 9,006th in the world and 501st in The North Pacific for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 26,923.56 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
