Empira Tallovia Factbook

Recommended Posts

Etymology - Empira Tallovia relieved its name from the name of the first colony on the islands.

Geography - under construction - Empira Tallovia is made up of several small islands. It is known for its beautiful beaches and volcanoes.

Capital City - Santiago was built around the original colony named Tallovia on the island but it's name comes from the leader of the colony named Santiago.

History - Under Construction

Government - Empira Tallovia is run as a Bureaucratic Monarchy. The roayl family Viloria has been in power for the last seventy five years after a failed coup ended with the death of most of the previous royal family. At the time the next in line of succession was the former King Opazo's uncle or his nephew King Viloria the First. The Viloria family has ruled for nearly a century in relative peace. Queen Pilar Viloria ascended to the throne four years ago after her father King Viloria III passed away. She is currently 32 years old and unmarried. Her younger brother Andres is next in line of succession to the throne.
While the Queen has the final say on all matters of state, the nation is largely run by a series of Chiefs of State for the various departments within the government. These positions are not democratically chosen. The queen herself hand picks the men and women who run each department of state. Often called Secretaries of State these men and women are chosen primarily from a pool of successful business men and women. The fifteen departments are as follows: Department of State, Department of the Treasury, Department of Defense, Department of Justice, Department of the Interior, Department of Agriculture, Department of Commerce, Department of Labor, Department of Health and Human Services, Department of Housing and Urban Development, Department of Transportation, Department of Energy, Department of Education, Department of Veterans Affairs, Department of Homeland Security.

Governors, Legislators, and Chiefs of Police are elected officials who report directly to the Chiefs of state. Citizens are able to make changes to their local government and policy, but they lack the power within the government to enact large scale change. Governors and Legislators are unpaid by the government, but their employers pay them a salary during their terms in office. For example if a woman worked in the auto industry and ran for office, her previous employer would pay her salary, and thus have some influence in the decision making process of the position. Police Chiefs and other auxiliary positions in the government are paid positions, but becoming a career politician is frowned upon and is not a viable career.

Leader - Queen Pilar Viloria age 37

Military - Under Construction

Economy - The nation's economy is largely driven by large corporations. Although Empria Tallovia has an open market, corruption in the government largely favors large business making it tougher for smaller companies to compete.

Demographics - Empria Tallovians are comprised of Native Islanders who intermarried with settlers from (I need to pick a nation who would have tried to colonize in the past)

Culture - Dancing and Island parties are a cultural event that many tourists flock to the nation to enjoy.

Language - Empira Tallovians speak Spanish, but many are taught English in school



OOC - this is still under construction. I'll update it this weekend with my flag and other pertinent information.
