The New Cordian Empire

Population1.026 billion

LeaderRandolf Kersson


The Democratic Norse Empire of The New Cordian Empire is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Randolf Kersson with an even hand, and renowned for its digital currency, aversion to nipples, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, devout population of 1.026 billion Cordians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cordasfjord. The average income tax rate is 80.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Cordian economy, worth 91.4 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 reasonably common. Average income is 89,102 cordans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles', libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, and the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers. 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 wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The New Cordian Empire is ranked 127,779th in the world and 22nd in Founderless for Most Influential, scoring 86 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
