Les Iles Orientales

Population198 million


The Federation of Les Iles Orientales is a very large, efficient nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 198 million Islanders live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, liberal, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 13.6%.

The very strong Islander economy, worth 11.4 trillion Gourdes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 57,802 Gourdes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 178,717 per year while the poor average 14,414, a ratio of 12.4 to 1.

There's more vermin than ever on the metro, the hardest thing for a mining operation to dig through is government red tape, prank shows are so hot right now, and the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Les Iles Orientales's national animal is the Stingray, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Les Iles Orientales is ranked 26,122nd in the world and 50th in Conch Kingdom for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 5,579.81 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
