Upper Amirate

The Holy Empire of Upper Amirate is a small, orderly nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 26 million Upper Amiriteses 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 medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.3%.

The strong Upper Amiratean economy, worth 1.26 trillion Holy Dollars a year, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 48,511 Holy Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 141,643 per year while the poor average 13,123, a ratio of 10.8 to 1.

The tightness of border controls in Upper Amirate leave a little to be desired, voting for pro-Bigtopian candidates is voluntary, citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, and innocent defendants often plead guilty for fear of receiving a much harsher sentence before jury. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Upper Amirate's national animal is the Falcon, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Upper Amirate is ranked 145,947th in the world and 19th in Watertown for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,707.56 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
