The Witch of Hemwick

Population4.279 billion


The Republic of The Witch of Hemwick is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its unlimited-speed roads, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, devout population of 4.279 billion Witch of Hemwickians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 67.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Witch of Hemwickian economy, worth 166 trillion kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Furniture Restoration, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 38,800 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes, back-alley circumcision clinics are popping up all over the nation, thousands of children die every day from easily curable illnesses, and the military is researching proton packs and PK-meters to combat "unseen enemy forces". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Witch of Hemwick's national animal is the cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Witch of Hemwick is ranked 198,228th in the world and 9th in Ilha do Povo for Highest Food Quality, scoring 7.56 on the Meeshlin-Starr Index.
