Promethius Prime

Population24.92 billion

LeaderEmpress Ai I


The Arcadian Empire of Promethius Prime is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Empress Ai I with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ubiquitous missile silos, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 24.92 billion Arcadians 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, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thedes. The average income tax rate is 56.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Promethius Primean economy, worth a remarkable 5,078 trillion Krendars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 203,783 Krendars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's orphanages and maternity wards have been nicknamed 'the Killbot Factories', there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, whenever pilots have to bail out the government bails out their company, and polite commuters on the Thedes Metro always let hurried workers off the train first. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Promethius Prime's national animal is the Emu, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Ilvennism.

Promethius Prime is ranked 185,697th in the world and 83rd in Aeia for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 25.59 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
