The Empowered

Population4.87 billion

The Anarchic Land of The Empowered is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 4.87 billion Empowered ones hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Education, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Environment and Law & Order aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Empowered economy, worth 846 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 173,866 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.1 times as much as the poorest.

The wreckages of bombed planes that litter The Empowered are highly popular tourist destinations, concussed Humanball players cannot remember their lineup position, the nation's taxpayers pay for foreign government's extravagances, and nose plugs are the latest Empowered fashion accessory. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Empowered's national animal is the Human, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Cthulu Worship.

The Empowered is ranked 2,019th in the world and 57th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 41.57 Obesity Rate.
