The Witch of Hemwick

Population3.392 billion


The Republic of The Witch of Hemwick is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its frequent executions, unlimited-speed roads, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, devout population of 3.392 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 Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 57.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Witch of Hemwickian economy, worth 111 trillion kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Soda Sales, Basket Weaving, Furniture Restoration, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 32,807 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced, holidays are regarded as the most miserable time of the year, the nanny industry has had a boom after maternity leave was recently banned, and ambulances aren't allowed to overtake hearses. 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 37,976th in the world and 17th in Equestria for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 4.25 Bank.
