Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Planetary Empire of Walbard is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by George VIII with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 17.205 billion Walbardians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Industry, Environment, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Defense and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Walbard City. The average income tax rate is 7.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Walbardian economy, worth a remarkable 3,310 trillion Walbardian Viras a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 192,427 Walbardian Viras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, reporters often lose their jobs over fact-checking errors, the government is giving peace a chance, and legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills. Crime is totally unknown. Walbard's national animal is the Walbardian Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Patriotism.

Walbard is ranked 5th in Walbard and 31,031st in the world for Safest, scoring 287.927 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
