Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Imperial Capital of Walbard is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by HIRM King Carlisle I with an even hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, rampant corporate plagiarism, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 18.406 billion Walbardians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial City. Income tax is unheard of.

The all-consuming Walbardian economy, worth a remarkable 3,237 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. Average income is an impressive 175,873 Walbardian Viras, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, unruly families are deliberately marooned on desert islands, the government's economic policy is "sort it yourself", and citizens are expected to be armed at all times. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Walbard's national animal is the Walbardian Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Walbard is ranked 152,254th in the world and 7th in Walbard for Most Primitive, scoring -403.83 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
