Ethereal Expanse

Population888 million

CapitalArcadia Prime


The Borderlands of Ethereal Expanse is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chancellor with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 888 million Ethereal Expanseans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arcadia Prime. The average income tax rate is 71.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ethereal Expansean economy, worth 113 trillion Dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 127,654 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, all mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave, and collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Ethereal Expanse's national animal is the Moose, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ethereal Expanse is ranked 146,132nd in the world and 7,526th in The North Pacific for Most Secular, with 13.44 Atheism Rate.
