Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federated Imperial States of Wantsum is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by His Excellency Emperor Cassius I with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, public floggings, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 9.208 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 relatively small, 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 4.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Wantsumian economy, worth a remarkable 1,348 trillion Imperial Soliduses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 146,407 Imperial Soliduses, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 469,392 per year while the poor average 34,639, a ratio of 13.6 to 1.

Snap elections are called over every minor impasse, the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, school lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time, and truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail. 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 soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is determined by the Emperor.

Wantsum is ranked 8,137th in the world and 5th in The Commonwealth of Crowns for Largest Black Market, with 34.1 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
