Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The FounderNation of Walbard is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Carlisle~Henry I with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, national health service, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 15.112 billion Walbardians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny government is primarily concerned with Education, although Industry and Public Transport are also considered important, while Social Policy and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Briz-Bun City. The average income tax rate is 3.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Walbardian economy, worth a remarkable 2,751 trillion Walbardian Viras a year, is broadly diversified and 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 182,067 Walbardian Viras, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Retired racing Walbardian Lions are served truffles for breakfast, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and city rooftops are pockmarked with the shattered remains of experimental delivery drones. Crime is well under control. 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 3rd in Walbard and 20,995th in the world for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 38 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
