|Leader||Emperor Arnulf Baldurich|
The Imperial Hegemony of Moewland is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Arnulf Baldurich with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, unlimited-speed roads, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 942 million Moewlanders are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baldurich. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 39.8%.
The frighteningly efficient Moewlandian economy, worth 167 trillion Moewland Crowns a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 178,335 Moewland Crowns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,322,687 per year while the poor average 7,157, a ratio of 184 to 1.
Days begin with afternoon tea, the Holy Office of the Inquisition is the highest court in the land, heart attacks are regarded as a coming of age ritual, and personal injury lawyers are demanding compensation from the government after recent reductions in manufacturer liability. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Moewland's national animal is the Serf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
