The Empire of Ekonia
“Para las personas. Para el estado”
|Category: Iron Fist Consumerists|
Location: The North Pacific
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Empire of Ekonia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Sir Halefire Bean IV with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, free-roaming dinosaurs, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.084 billion Ekonians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elkton. The average income tax rate is 67.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The thriving Ekonian economy, worth 87.5 trillion Untzes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 80,675 Untzes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, women across the country are tying the knot, corporate lawyers are joyfully combing through the new tax code for any new loopholes for their clients, and tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ekonia's national animal is the Elk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
