OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Commonwealth of Whipjangle is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space. Its hard-nosed, intelligent population of 22.537 billion hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The small government juggles the competing demands of Defence, Social Welfare, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology industries.

Travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs, the nation refuses to provide international aid, the people elect the Supreme Court justices directly, and elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Whipjangle's national animal is the rattlesnake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the jangle.

Whipjangle is ranked 30th in libertarian and 108,624th in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -4 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
