Regional Influence: Eminence Grise


The United Empire of So Pep is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by James Attendant with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.141 billion So Peppians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pepsia. The average income tax rate is 74.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient So Peppian economy, worth 450 trillion Peppian Pounds a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 143,504 Peppian Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, gift baskets often contain working nukes, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, and a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. So Pep's national animal is the Peppian Feather-Bellied Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Peppian Judaism.

So Pep is ranked 19,119th in the world and 5th in Odrya for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,402.25 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
