New Walvis Bay

Population2.673 billion


The Free Land of New Walvis Bay is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.673 billion New Walvis Bayians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, pro-business government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.5%.

The thriving New Walvis Bayian economy, worth 199 trillion francs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 74,669 francs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 256,174 per year while the poor average 15,974, a ratio of 16.0 to 1.

Surveillance cameras are banned, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, male med students learning female anatomy do so with their eyes tightly closed, and genetic researchers have been expelled. Crime is a problem, 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 can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

New Walvis Bay is ranked 58,802nd in the world and 3rd in United Alliances for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 106.07 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
