GWF Bagel

Population1.549 billion


The Rogue Nation of GWF Bagel is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic, devout population of 1.549 billion GWF Bagelians 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.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Education. The average income tax rate is 74.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant GWF Bagelian economy, worth 9.81 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Retail. Average income is 6,336 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. GWF Bagel's national animal is the unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

GWF Bagel is ranked 82,766th in the world and 1st in Coalition Of Freedom for Smartest Citizens, with 35.89 quips per hour.
