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 iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, anti-smoking policies, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.666 billion Wantsumians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Erion City - Imperial District. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Wantsumian economy, worth a remarkable 1,275 trillion Imperial Soliduses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 147,221 Imperial Soliduses, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 434,519 per year while the poor average 39,226, a ratio of 11.1 to 1.

Elections are won by the candidate who makes the best 'yo mama' jokes, Wantsum's leader goes out to lunch surrounded by large men in dark glasses, decaying farm hamlets have twice the representation of major urban areas, and public incontinence is a growing problem amongst the nation's women. 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 40,532nd in the world and 28th in The Commonwealth of Crowns for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,807.74 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
