The Holy Empire of Open Towers is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, frequent executions, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.055 billion Open Towersians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Spirituality, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 18.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Open Towersian economy, worth 223 trillion Ducats a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 108,856 Ducats, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 342,437 per year while the poor average 26,477, a ratio of 12.9 to 1.

Politicians are often seen drinking soft drinks at the end of every public address, nuclear physics is the most popular course at university, CSI Forest is this year's hit new crime show, and pizza parlors have been replaced by lima bean cafes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Open Towers's national animal is the Lynx, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Open Towers is ranked 37,485th in the world and 9th in European Union for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 12.93 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
