We welcome The Empire of Cupania (http://www.sunsetrpg.com/economystatistics.php?nation=Cupania), as the 165th member nation state in 01 Eastern Roman Empire Region.
The Empire of Cupania is a large, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 45 million 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. The average income tax rate is 34%, but much higher for the wealthy. A healthy private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Gambling and Retail.
Homosexuality is a crime punishable by death, high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, citizens must pay to enjoy Cupania's pristine beaches, and the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Cupania's national animal is the golden eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the imperial.
