Southern Whia Lei

The United Socialist States of Southern Whia Lei is a very large, orderly nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, ban on automobiles, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 182 million Southern Whia Leians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 75.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Southern Whia Leian economy, worth 2.67 trillion dollars 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 Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 14,643 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Welfare funding has recently gone through the roof, every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts, women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms, and turning eighteen is often referred to as the 'Age of Aquarius'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Southern Whia Lei's national animal is the unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Southern Whia Lei is ranked 114,120th in the world and 5,787th in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 891.64 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
