LeaderPrime Minister Ardern


The Republic of Empotia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Ardern with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.252 billion Empotians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kyra. The average income tax rate is 84.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Empotian economy, worth 274 trillion Dureis a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 121,798 Dureis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, the government has ordered a moratorium on referenda, it ain't easy to be green enough to be imported into Empotia, and the government prefers to kill off its enemies by peaceful means. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 6,454th in the world and 331st in Osiris for Healthiest Citizens, with 17.32 bananas ingested per day.
