TEP World Assembly HQ

Population206 million


The Community of TEP World Assembly HQ is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory vegetarianism and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 206 million East Pacificans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Public Transport, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 14.8%.

The strong East Pacifican economy, worth 9.96 trillion resolutions a year, is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Information Technology. Average income is 48,339 resolutions, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

TEP World Assembly HQ's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, prisoners regularly escape detention posing as scarecrows, and one tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber. Crime is moderate. TEP World Assembly HQ's national animal is the gnome, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

TEP World Assembly HQ is ranked 252,390th in the world and 4,804th in The East Pacific for Most Devout, with 7.59 prayers per hour.
