Perzische Keizer

Population4.904 billion

LeaderImperial Majesty King Babak the 1st


The Empire of Perzische Keizer is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Imperial Majesty King Babak the 1st with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.904 billion Perzen 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 large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Defense, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atlantis. The average income tax rate is 77.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Perzisch economy, worth 507 trillion Ashrafis a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 103,537 Ashrafis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints, the voyages of obsolete star-trekking satellites on deliberate escape orbits are only just beginning, employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, and graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Perzische Keizer's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Perzische Keizer is ranked 173,608th in the world and 1,176th in 10000 Islands for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -14 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
