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 iron fist, and notable for its conspicuous electricity pylons, national health service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.989 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 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 3.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Wantsumian economy, worth a remarkable 1,341 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 149,265 Imperial Soliduses, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 459,472 per year while the poor average 37,460, a ratio of 12.3 to 1.

Half of Wantsum's doctors can't speak the language, young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, entire provinces are populated solely by nuclear missile technicians and military police, and the media have began calling the government treasury "His Excellency Emperor Cassius I's stash". 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 45,703rd in the world and 33rd in The Commonwealth of Crowns for Highest Poor Incomes, with 37,460.8 Standard Monetary Units.
