OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Wentworthville is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Donald Aves Mallard with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 8.628 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 70%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

Only the wealthy can afford monorail fares, violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, and organ donation is compulsory. 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 825th in Osiris and 23,478th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 9 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
