OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Wilfred Test is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Nicholas Fine with an even hand, and renowned for its restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, intelligent population of 8.888 billion Testians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Archer's Bow. The average income tax rate is 73%, and even higher for the wealthy. 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.

It's always rabbit season, the nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events, noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, and the explosive fireball of the disintegrating space shuttle has devastated Cape Wilfred Test. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wilfred Test's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is No Official Religion, and its currency is the Quirke.

Wilfred Test is ranked 47th in Black Mesa Islands and 92,845th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -10 on the Hayek Index.
