Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Rushmori Nation of Wigu is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 21.36 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 85.6%.

The Wiguese economy, worth a remarkable 1,073 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 50,275 new t'ahs, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 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 165,497th in the world and 94th in Rushmore for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -9.8 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
