The Republic of Old Emporia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Elizabeth with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, parental licensing program, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, hard-working population of 2.26 billion Old Emporians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Rapture. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.8%.
The frighteningly efficient Old Emporian economy, worth 287 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 127,243 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 366,394 per year while the poor average 35,099, a ratio of 10.4 to 1.
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.
