The Taprobanium Empire

Population2.523 billion

LeaderKing Alexander III


The Fair Yet Mighty Land of The Taprobanium Empire is a massive, genial nation, ruled by King Alexander III with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 2.523 billion Taprobaniums are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government prioritizes Spirituality, with Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Taxilla. The average income tax rate is 38.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Taprobanium Empirean economy, worth 137 trillion Rupees a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 54,656 Rupees, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The slowest students feel vaguely targeted by their Mendelian Inheritance coursework, gossip magazines have pictures of King Alexander III sunbathing on the beach with political rivals, King Alexander III has just been declared ruler of The Taprobanium Empire in an international press conference, and Buddhism has been named as The Taprobanium Empire's national religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Taprobanium Empire's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Buddhism.

The Taprobanium Empire is ranked 115,517th in the world and 3rd in The Three Isles for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 1,033.98 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
