Erie-Arcadia of Wombats

Population368 million


CurrencyEmerald Piece

The United Socialist States of Erie-Arcadia of Wombats is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its ban on automobiles, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 368 million Erie-Arcadians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wombatopia. The average income tax rate is 79.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Erie-Arcadian economy, worth 12.1 trillion Emerald Pieces a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Pizza Delivery industry, with significant contributions from Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 33,001 Emerald Pieces, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Genetic research is temporarily tied up in government red tape, the government funds large training centres to turn Wombats into functioning members of society, the right school tie opens more doors than the right qualification, and therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Erie-Arcadia of Wombats's national animal is the Wombat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Erie-Arcadia of Wombats is ranked 242,364th in the world and 297th in Refugia for Fattest Citizens, with 5.69 Obesity Rate.
