The First Earth Empire

The Allied States of The First Earth Empire is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Kuvira Beifong with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 1.727 billion Citizens are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ba Sing Se. The average income tax rate is 38.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming First Earth Empirean economy, worth 128 trillion Jiaos a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Retail. Average income is 74,657 Jiaos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, the government's official stance on religion is that it is so very silly, and parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The First Earth Empire's national animal is the Badgermole, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Progress.

The First Earth Empire is ranked 216,232nd in the world and 5,058th in the West Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -161.06 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
