Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Galactic Empire of Walbard is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by HIRM King Carlisle I with a fair hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, unlimited-speed roads, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 17.824 billion Walbardians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, although Healthcare is also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Walbard City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Walbardian economy, worth a remarkable 3,107 trillion Walbardian Viras a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 174,319 Walbardian Viras, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

Walbardian Lions are becoming popular in pet stores nationwide, there are no minimum wage laws, all artwork is carefully screened for offensive material, and X-Files ratings have hit an all-time low. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Walbard's national animal is the Walbardian Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Walbardianism.

Walbard is ranked 102,628th in the world and 7th in Walbard for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 909.52 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
