A Following Wind

Population280 million


The Republic of A Following Wind is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-working, democratic population of 280 million Following Windians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government prioritizes Defense, although Welfare, Healthcare, and Public Transport are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.9%.

The strong Following Windian economy, worth 11.7 trillion florins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Furniture Restoration, and Book Publishing. Average income is 41,685 florins, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 268,668 per year while the poor average 2,613, a ratio of 102 to 1.

Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. A Following Wind's national animal is the swan, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

A Following Wind is ranked 15,753rd in the world and 1st in Guinea Kiribati for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 102.81 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
