OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Wentworthville is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Donald Aves Mallard with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, intelligent population of 8.279 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 68%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

The roads are notorious throughout the region for their peril, strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, bicycle parking sheds sprout like mushrooms near rail stations after cars are banned, and cremation is compulsory for the deceased. 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 2,876th in Osiris and 109,742nd in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -32 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
