Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Imperial Principality of Wysteria is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Nathaniel Mor with an iron fist, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 6.301 billion Wysterians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded individuals is primarily concerned with Law & Order, with Industry, Environment, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Public Transport and Education aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vendonia. Income tax is unheard of.

The very strong Wysterian economy, worth 427 trillion Karans a year, is driven entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 67,846 Karans, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 236,402 per year while the poor average 14,176, a ratio of 16.7 to 1.

Teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, and cremation is compulsory for the deceased. Crime is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Wysteria's national animal is the Boar, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Judaism.

Wysteria is ranked 227th in the Rejected Realms and 13,760th in the world for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, scoring 159 on the Inverse Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
