The Wires Empire

Population1.066 billion

CapitalThe State


The State of The Wires Empire is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Lincoln with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, national health service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.066 billion wireans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The State. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 46.5%.

The frighteningly efficient wirean economy, worth 151 trillion Wireses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 142,403 Wireses, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

One-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, high-tech infantry rifles automatically reload when the soldier shoots outside the screen of their helmet HUD, and doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. The Wires Empire's national animal is the Phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is NEVER.

The Wires Empire is ranked 13,527th in the world and 235th in 10000 Islands for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 22.61 Bank.
