The Surfers of Wipe Out is a colossal, orderly nation, remarkable for its smutty television and suspicion of poets. The cynical population of 6.922 billion Wipe Outians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Social Policy, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 49.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The large but underdeveloped Wipe Outian economy, worth 193 trillion credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 27,947 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
The police force is rumoured to be made up of evil shadows with no souls, many parents are becoming frustrated with their children's choices in spouses, gigantic new prisons are springing up all over the nation, and the Federal Council of Wipe Out has been announced as the new Head of State. Crime is well under control, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wipe Out's national animal is the animal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
