IWCA 038

The United Socialist States of IWCA 038 is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles, pith helmet sales, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed population of 968 million IWCA 038ians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 41.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong IWCA 038ian economy, worth 80.8 trillion pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 83,471 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Leader has no checks and balances after the upper house was abolished, the new one pound coin also makes a handy throwing-star, citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, and the nation solves other countries' human rights problems with a generous dose of violence. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. IWCA 038's national animal is the cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

IWCA 038 is ranked 57,700th in the world and 12th in New Coalition of Nations for Largest Governments, scoring 17.44 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
