Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Caldari State of The Old English Order is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by High Chancellor Peter Creedy with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, frequent executions, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.474 billion Caldari 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New London. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 63.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Caldari economy, worth a remarkable 1,002 trillion Caldari ISKS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 224,112 Caldari ISKS, with the richest citizens earning 8.1 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's exceedingly polite children have often been referred to as "robots" by international media, the letters L, G, and B must never be grouped together, blind dates tend to result in bruised shins, and there has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Old English Order's national animal is the Harrier, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Rationalism.

The Old English Order is ranked 37,248th in the world and 1,025th in Lazarus for Most Extreme, scoring 24.62 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
