Old Emporia

Population5.95 billion

CapitalNew Rapture


The Republic of Old Emporia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Elizabeth with an even hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, ban on automobiles, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, hard-working population of 5.95 billion Old Emporians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Rapture. The average income tax rate is 35.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Old Emporian economy, worth 714 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 120,139 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The countryside is shrouded by wind farms, the military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles', party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", and stoned tourists don't tend to remember much about their holidays here. Crime is totally unknown. Old Emporia's national animal is the Crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Old Emporia is ranked 108,492nd in the world and 4,831st in The North Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 2,556.85 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
