Sal Wes Pros

Population241 million


The Grand Duchy of Sal Wes Pros is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 241 million Sal Wes Prosians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 75.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Sal Wes Prosian economy, worth 2.31 trillion pesos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 9,586 pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People are bored of easy crossword puzzles, prisoners pray grey skies are gonna clear up, the might of the entire Sal Wes Prosian Navy is focused on fifty bemused spear-throwing islanders, and workers' complaints never reach central planning. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sal Wes Pros's national animal is the sheep, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sal Wes Pros is ranked 149,138th in the world and 5,128th in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 407.34 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
