Old Emporia

Population6.518 billion

CapitalNew Rapture


The Republic of Old Emporia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Elizabeth with an even hand, and renowned for its aversion to nipples, strictly enforced bedtime, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working population of 6.518 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 receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Rapture. The average income tax rate is 41.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Old Emporian economy, worth 746 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 114,465 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 13,006th in the world and 548th in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 60.0 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
