Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Stadt-Republic of Walbard is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by HM Carlisle~Henry I with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and deadly medical pandemics. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 16.047 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, Public Transport, and Environment also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Imperial City. The average income tax rate is 5.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Walbardian economy, worth a remarkable 2,841 trillion Walbardian Viras a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 177,101 Walbardian Viras, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The fire protection service is wholly government-funded, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, citizens are expected to be armed at all times, and prison visits increase substantially during election years. 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 Church of Walbard.

Walbard is ranked 1st in Walbard and 6,626th in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 108 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
