Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Republic of Wilfred Test is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Adrian Maslow with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, complete lack of prisons, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 9.989 billion Testians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Archer's Bow. The average income tax rate is 76.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Testian economy, worth 234 trillion Quirkes a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 23,514 Quirkes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect, the nation's only university is the School of Hard Knocks, the government has undertaken a massive education and health program to combat VODAIS, and the national sporting identity is represented by a talking burger and a singing smartphone. 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, and its national religion is Atheism.

Wilfred Test is ranked 9th in MHOC NationStates Region and 33,807th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 10 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
