The New Cordian Empire Foreign Envoy

Population787 million

AnimalCordian White Wolf

The Colony of The New Cordian Empire Foreign Envoy is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 787 million Cordians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 55.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Cordian economy, worth 31.1 trillion cordans a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 39,563 cordans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy', churches across the land are hurriedly installing auto-tune for their choirs, the government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, and the last thing Cordian soldiers hear before charging into battle is a preacher trying to convert them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The New Cordian Empire Foreign Envoy's national animal is the Cordian White Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The New Cordian Empire Foreign Envoy is ranked 204,349th in the world and 20th in Founderless for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring zero on the Gilded Widget Scale.
