Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Illustriously Shiny Embassy of Wysterian Ambassadors is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its unlimited-speed roads, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 25.751 billion Embassy Staffers 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 relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 6.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wysterian Ambassadorsian economy, worth a remarkable 2,718 trillion Hands of Friendship a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 105,564 Hands of Friendship, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

More and more students are taking up a career in medicine, airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted, tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Wysterian Ambassadors Blood Tithe, and citizens may cast their vote over the internet or phone. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Wysterian Ambassadors's national animal is the Badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wysterian Ambassadors is ranked 21st in The Heartland and 140,118th in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring -35 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
