OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Eternal Planetary Empire of Walbard is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Carlisle Henry Tudor with an even hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 14.546 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Social Equality and Defence receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Castlereigh Metro. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 59%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Prosecutors routinely call transplant doctors as 'expert witnesses' in burglary cases, the nation has become a pariah for giving pirates letters of marque, surveillance cameras are banned, and the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion. Crime is totally unknown. Walbard's national animal is the Walbardian Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Walbardian Cultism, and its currency is the Walbardian Vira.

Walbard is ranked 1st in The Walbard Republic and 2,242nd in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 317 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
