The Giant Space Wyrm

Population182 million

The Dominion of The Giant Space Wyrm is a very large, efficient nation, remarkable for its public floggings, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 182 million Giant Space Wyrmians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 39.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Giant Space Wyrmian economy, worth 16.6 trillion Wyrm Coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 91,333 Wyrm Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

High-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, drug distribution is tightly controlled by the government, conscripts often volunteer for a second tour of duty so they can get a ticket to next year's Army Revue, and children seem to be getting better at lying these days. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Giant Space Wyrm's national animal is the Worm, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Giant Space Wyrm is ranked 188,123rd in the world and 38th in Imperium of the Wolves for Best Weather, with 82 Meters Of Sunlight.
