The Federation of Empty Promises is a massive, safe nation, notable for its burgeoning Vulture population. The hard-working population of 3.16 billion Empty Promisesians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 25.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Empty Promisesian economy, worth 118 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 37,376 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Empty Promises's national animal is the Vulture.

Empty Promises is ranked 175,555th in the world and 5,545th in the Rejected Realms for Most Developed, scoring 52.14 on the Human Development Index.
