Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Rushmori Nation of Wigu is a gargantuan, orderly nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 18.774 billion Wiguese are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 85.9%.

The Wiguese economy, worth 943 trillion new t'ahs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery. Average income is 50,279 new t'ahs, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government funds large training centres to turn monkeys into functioning members of society, citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", the government has returned all business to private ownership, and the nation is completely gun-free. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wigu's national animal is the monkey, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Wigu is ranked 66th in Rushmore and 81,107th in the world for Stupidest Citizens, scoring 12 on the Average Edu-UNtellignce® Test Score.
