Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Stadt-Republic of Walbard is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by HM Carlisle~Henry I with a fair hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, national health service, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 16.198 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, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Industry, Public Transport, and Environment 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 The Imperial City. The average income tax rate is 3.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Walbardian economy, worth a remarkable 2,904 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 179,328 Walbardian Viras, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Mobile phone masts are being erected all over the country, Members of Parliament operate under a PAYE scheme, small businesses are gobbled up almost daily by corporate giants, and a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up. 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 8th in Walbard and 122,516th in the world for Most Devout, scoring -59 on the Paradise-Perdition Likelihood Rating.
