“Representing our Green and Pleasant Region to the World”
|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Regional Influence: Minnow
The Illustriously Shiny Embassy of Wysterian Ambassadors is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 24.237 billion Wysterian Ambassadorsians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Commerce. The average income tax rate is 8%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Automobile Manufacturing industry.
Students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, more and more students are taking up a career in medicine, airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted, and tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Wysterian Ambassadors Blood Tithe. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Wysterian Ambassadors's national animal is the Badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Hand of Friendship.
