The Federation of Whirl Islands is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Amira Paulini with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 12.884 billion Whirl-Islanders have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — prioritizes Environment, with Healthcare, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Navel Island. The average income tax rate is 74.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Whirl Islandsian economy, worth 695 trillion Dollars a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 53,975 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.
The government encourages conflict abroad to increase arms sales, the government pours millions of Dollars into rehabilitation programs annually, political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, and Navel Island spends billions upgrading public transport. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Whirl Islands's national animal is the hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.
