Location: Balder

Regional Influence: Sprat


The Matriarchy of Embertari is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 2.732 billion Embertarians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 75.0%.

The Embertarian economy, worth 83.8 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Soda Sales, Uranium Mining, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 30,664 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

Libraries are bulldozed to make way for internet cafés, terrorists are on a first name basis with the officials that stamp their passports, man-love is banned in the name of His love, and anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem. Embertari's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Embertari is ranked 216,847th in the world and 5,550th in Balder for Highest Drug Use, scoring 26.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
