OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Crowned Republic of Walbard is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Sir Henry James Tudor with an even hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 14.13 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 concentrates mainly on Education, although Commerce and Public Transport are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Walla. The average income tax rate is 77%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, loans are available for students from poor families, high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, and government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders. 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 Love, and its currency is the Walbardian Pound.

Walbard is ranked 4th in The Walbard Republic and 18,582nd in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 11 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
