The Hay Wain

Population1.971 billion

The Republic of The Hay Wain is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, daily referendums, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 1.971 billion Hay Wainians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 27.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Hay Wainian economy, worth 66.6 trillion francs a year, is led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 33,808 francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

School children are expected to know the names of all seven hundred native tribes and their cultural practices, college-level writing classes are taught by undergraduate editors of the school newspaper, the government's official stance on religion is that it is so very silly, and signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Hay Wain's national animal is the cow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Hay Wain is ranked 162,649th in the world and 398th in NationStates Museum of Art for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 95.94 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
