Old Emporia

Population2.637 billion

CapitalNew Rapture


The Republic of Old Emporia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Elizabeth with an even hand, and renowned for its digital currency, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and parental licensing program. The compassionate, hard-working population of 2.637 billion Old Emporians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Rapture. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 14.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Old Emporian economy, worth 334 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 126,717 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 9.5 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 56,825th in the world and 3,787th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 50.99 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
