Regional Influence: Shoeshiner


The Republic of Old Emporia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Elizabeth with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and aversion to nipples. The compassionate, hard-working population of 5.271 billion Old Emporians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Rapture. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 23.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Old Emporian economy, worth 668 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 126,917 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 8.3 times as much as the poorest.

The countryside is shrouded by wind farms, the military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles', party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", and stoned tourists don't tend to remember much about their holidays here. Crime is totally unknown. Old Emporia's national animal is the Crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Old Emporia is ranked 119,621st in the world and 5,545th in The North Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 23.08 Effective Tax Rate.
