The Elite Defense Union Coalition

Population1.269 billion



The Federation of The Elite Defense Union Coalition is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by SOL with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 1.269 billion Aroarans 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 government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rising. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 49.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Aroaran economy, worth 134 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 105,606 Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 326,582 per year while the poor average 26,328, a ratio of 12.4 to 1.

People are careful to avoid hyperbolising that they'd "rather die" than support SOL, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized, and friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Elite Defense Union Coalition's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Elite Defense Union Coalition is ranked 18,813th in the world and 1,035th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 77.17 on the Human Development Index.
