OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Wentworthville is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Donald Aves Mallard with an even hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles. The compassionate, intelligent population of 8.329 billion Wentworthvilleans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mallardville. The average income tax rate is 69%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

Bicycle parking sheds sprout like mushrooms near rail stations after cars are banned, cremation is compulsory for the deceased, the judicial system legislates morality, and a government program is underway to revitalize Wentworthville's beaches. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wentworthville's national animal is the Duck, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Quack.

Wentworthville is ranked 2,174th in Osiris and 88,268th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -9 on the Hayek Index.
