The Great Tea Empire

Population700 million

The Constitutional Monarchy of The Great Tea Empire is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, strictly enforced bedtime, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 700 million Tea Drinkers are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of London. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 50.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Tea Drinker economy, worth 83.5 trillion english pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 119,346 english pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 358,576 per year while the poor average 31,007, a ratio of 11.6 to 1.

The banshee wail foretells skies of death, suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, colonial subjects have Tea Drinker culture shoved down their throats, and expats return home to a government devoid of social and environmental agencies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Great Tea Empire's national animal is the tea, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Great Tea Empire is ranked 11,568th in the world and 311th in The East Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 352.15 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
