New Walvis Bay

The Provisional Ruling Council of New Walvis Bay is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, aversion to nipples, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.146 billion New Walvis Bayians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The minute government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.7%.

The very strong New Walvis Bayian economy, worth 543 trillion francs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Gambling. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 76,095 francs, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.

An alabaster statue of an ancient cat-deity takes pride of place in the centre of New Walvis Bay City, a stocking with a crooked seam or a tie without a full Windsor knot are grounds for instant dismissal, internet ads promising "hot singles in your area" are even less accurate than they used to be, and torture is illegal. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. New Walvis Bay's national animal is the lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

New Walvis Bay is ranked 124,094th in the world and 17th in United Alliances for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 2,298.75 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
