The New Cordian Empire

Population335 million


AnimalCordian White Wolf

The Empire of The New Cordian Empire is a huge, safe nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 335 million Cordians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pavendumsa. The average income tax rate is 67.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong New Cordian Empirean economy, worth 20.5 trillion cordans a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 61,072 cordans, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Directors of low-budget sci-fi films are flocking to use Pavendumsa as a backdrop, prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, kissing cousins produce the heartiest babies, and tampons are used as cheap fishing bobbers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The New Cordian Empire's national animal is the Cordian White Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The New Cordian Empire is ranked 35,291st in the world and 1st in New Camelotian States for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 67.63 Effective Tax Rate.
