|Leader||Constantinus XV Palaeologus-Makedon|
The United Empire of Pedran is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Constantinus XV Palaeologus-Makedon with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, daily referendums, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.225 billion Americans 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Roma Nova. The average income tax rate is 65.1%.
The frighteningly efficient Pedranian economy, worth 910 trillion Soliduses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 174,188 Soliduses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.
Grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them, rumour has it Constantinus XV Palaeologus-Makedon needs a calculator to multiply ten by ten, surrogate mothers are encouraged to refer to their wombs as 'rental space', and the fattest folk in Pedran look to be the happiest ones. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pedran's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Ecumenical Church.
