Elder Realms

Population2.868 billion


The Republic of Elder Realms is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.868 billion Elder Realmsians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Administration also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. The average income tax rate is 66.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Elder Realmsian economy, worth 224 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Soda Sales, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 78,341 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them, things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication, Elder Realmsian husbands are dead good at fathering kids, and corporate lawyers are joyfully combing through the new tax code for any new loopholes for their clients. Crime is totally unknown. Elder Realms's national animal is the cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Elder Realms is ranked 48,620th in the world and 2,510th in Osiris for Highest Average Incomes, with 78,341.47 Standard Monetary Units.
