Old Emporia

Population7.403 billion

CapitalNew Rapture


The Republic of Old Emporia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Elizabeth with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, digital currency, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working population of 7.403 billion Old Emporians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal 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 43.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Old Emporian economy, worth 824 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. Average income is an impressive 111,383 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

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 23,553rd in the world and 1,303rd in The North Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 9.03 Bank.
