Empire of the Western Woods

Population349 million


AnimalWest Red Fox

The United Kingdom of Empire of the Western Woods is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 349 million Western Woodsmens have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Charleston. The average income tax rate is 24.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Empire of the Western Woodsian economy, worth 36.8 trillion Royales a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 105,303 Royales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Cogitators and mass debaters are skiving off work to hang around the National Symposium Park, the government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, turning eighteen is often referred to as the 'Age of Aquarius', and children are often punished for the sins of the fathers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Empire of the Western Woods's national animal is the West Red Fox, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Empire of the Western Woods is ranked 73,872nd in the world and 3,334th in the South Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 9.98 Obesity Rate.
