The Empire of Airioch

Location: The North Pacific

Regional Influence: Sprat


The Empire of Airioch is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 255 million Airiochians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Welfare, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 21.1%.

The thriving Airiochian economy, worth 21.6 trillion Riochas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is 84,900 Riochas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Producers insist that movie stars wear crash helmets in every scene, nude art is becoming wildly popular, families must live in a village for a century before they get any say in how it runs, and prisoners regularly escape detention posing as scarecrows. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Airioch's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Airioch is ranked 112,224th in the world and 5,481st in The North Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 1,960.27 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
