OverviewDispatchesPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Constitutional Monarchy of The Great Tea Empire is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its frequent executions, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 527 million Tea Drinkers 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of London. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 54.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Tea Drinker economy, worth 61.9 trillion english pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 117,363 english pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 362,939 per year while the poor average 29,259, a ratio of 12.4 to 1.

It is illegal to liberate slaves, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over The Great Tea Empire, all footpaths have tollbooths, and the Department of Health is snowed under by requests for crisper ciabatta and tenderer tagliatelle. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Great Tea Empire's national animal is the tea, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Great Tea Empire is ranked 43,957th in the world and 1,728th in The East Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,148.48 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
