Eastern Mekong

Population214 million


The Republic of Eastern Mekong is a huge, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 214 million East Mekongians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 16.6%.

The powerhouse Eastern Mekongian economy, worth 20.3 trillion Baht a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 94,674 Baht, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes, road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans, banning party poppers has been a real party pooper, and balaclava manufacturers are held criminally culpable for bank heists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Eastern Mekong's national animal is the Elephant, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Eastern Mekong is ranked 87,388th in the world and 3,093rd in the South Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 4.21 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
