Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federated Imperial States of Wantsum is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by His Excellency Emperor Cassius I with an even hand, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, smutty television, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 8.29 billion Wantsumians 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.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Erion City - Imperial District. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Wantsumian economy, worth a remarkable 1,139 trillion Imperial Soliduses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 137,455 Imperial Soliduses, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 482,295 per year while the poor average 28,418, a ratio of 17.0 to 1.

Commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies, voters must frequently select what they view as the lesser of two evils on the ballot, the nation is now proudly cholera-free, and the government is financing an extremely costly war against malaria. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wantsum's national animal is the Imperial Black Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is determined by the Emperor.

Wantsum is ranked 176,589th in the world and 45th in The Commonwealth of Crowns for Most Ignorant Citizens, with 1.14 Missed References Per Hour.
