Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Lascivious Lycanthropy of John Talbot is a gargantuan, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 17.069 billion Talbotians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.5%.

The frighteningly efficient a Talbotian economy, worth a remarkable 1,525 trillion Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 89,389 Pounds, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 392,787 per year while the poor average 12,785, a ratio of 30.7 to 1.

Billions of Pounds are being blown on orbital weapons development, ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, almost half of the child population live rough on the streets, and corporations cut costs by taking away safety-features on their products. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force. John Talbot's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

John Talbot is ranked 48,430th in the world and 1st in The Unicorns of the World for Highest Crime Rates, with 9.16 Crimes Per Hour.
