Internal Politics: The King is dead and his son has assumed the throne. The transition has been a smooth one. Very peaceful as a matter of fact since the bloodline was direct and the country has been so well managed for generations now by the Nahil family. Since the Great Ethiopian Civil War has been controlled by the Nahil family and the rise of Ethiopia has been astonishing. The People love the ruling family because of 200 years of fair and just rule.
Economy: 12 RU in production, 12th largest national Budget 144
billion livre the Economy you would think the economy was booming. Turmoil is prevalent
because if the break up of the EAEU (used to be the #6 economy on the planet prior to the
break up). The projects (especially the Space program) now suffering from the reduction of
funding from the other EAEU. Unemployment has risen to 12% the highest level since before
the EAEU was founded. On the upside the economy is very strong still and the royal family
was prepared for the Death of the EAEU and the 17 billion dollar discretionary fund should
be helpful in remedying some of the economic hard times.
Population: 213 Million People 98% Literacy Rate 77% College Educated GDP ranking of 48th
As is the problem with all monarchies the military is large and the GDP is lower than
it should be. Starvation is no longer a daily concern for Ethiopians and that has gone a
long way to keeping the lands peaceful. The high literacy rate and the decent College
graduation rate show a concerted effort by the monarchy to make sure all of the people are
given an opportunity to succeed. Military service is mandatory but the 2 year service time
is not considered terrible when the average life span is 83 years. Unemployment rate is
high as a result of the failure of the East African Economic Union (EAEU).
Military: The largest military on the continent with the exception on
Azania. A three hundred thousand man army with a sizable navy and aerospace contingent as
well Ethiopia is prepared for any potential problems that might be caused by the break up
of the EAEU. When the EAEU was in place the need for a large military presence was
questionable but now that the EAEU has collapsed there are concerns that the border
disputes that Ethiopia has with nearly all its neighbors will become an issue again.
Especially with Somalia and Eritrea.
External Politics: Ethiopia has several immediate concerns. Securing agreements with bordering nations in order to guarantee peace. Attaining access to space as soon as possible. If at all possible reforming in some form or another the EAEU.
