Location: the Rejected Realms
The Imperial Principality of Wysteria is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Nathaniel Mor with an iron fist, and notable for its restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.672 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 devotes most of its attentions to Law & Order, with areas such as Education and Public Transport receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vendonia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1%. A robust private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Gambling and Beef-Based Agriculture.
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 problem. Wysteria's national animal is the Boar, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Judaism, and its currency is the Karan.
Wysteria is ranked 57,609th in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 0 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
