The Wires Empire

Population2.863 billion



The Rocketry God of The Wires Empire is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Lincoln with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.863 billion wireans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Phoenixia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 52.1%.

The frighteningly efficient wirean economy, worth 467 trillion Wires a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 163,389 Wires, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 576,313 per year while the poor average 33,508, a ratio of 17.2 to 1.

There is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, maintaining economic growth is no laughing matter, the sound of office water cooler chatter has been replaced by the whirring of computer cooling fans, and strip mining of rare earth metals is up while back problems are down. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Wires Empire's national animal is the Tulp, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is NA.

The Wires Empire is ranked 232,224th in the world and 1,565th in 10000 Islands for Most Income Equality, scoring 5.81 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
