We welcome The Empire of East Russia and Alaska (http://www.sunsetrpg.com/economystatistics.php?nation=East+Russia+and+Alaska), as the 243rd nation state in 01 Eastern Roman Empire Region.
The Empire of East Russia and Alaska is a tiny, economically powerful nation, remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5 million are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.
The small, corrupt, pro-business government is mainly concerned with Law & Order, although Commerce and Religion & Spirituality are on the agenda. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Automobile Manufacturing, Pizza Delivery, and Trout Farming industries.
Crime is a serious problem. East Russia and Alaska's national animal is the tiger and bear and its currency is the durble .
