“His name was Wigu, he lived in an igloo”
|Category: Father Knows Best State|
Regional Influence: Vassal
The Rushmori Nation of Wigu is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 16.977 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 Social Welfare, Defence, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 65%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
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 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, and its currency is the new t'ah.
