Tieleman Empire

Population487 million



The Empire of Tieleman Empire is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, otherworldly petting zoo, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 487 million Tielemenians 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Andreisburg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.9%.

The Tieleman Empirean economy, worth 28.5 trillion Tiels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 58,577 Tiels, with the richest citizens earning 7.6 times as much as the poorest.

Environmental protestors are being rounded up and taken away in sinister black vans as a massive land development campaign gets underway, it's a hard-knock life for the orphans doing factory work for a pittance, the nation is currently revamping its entire education system, and Tieleman Empire has designated Andreisburg as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tieleman Empire's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Tieleman Empire is ranked 48,332nd in the world and 603rd in The Communist Bloc for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 2,829.37 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
