The Woldlands

The Kingdom of The Woldlands is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its burgeoning Lion population. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 227 million Bruquemand are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Defense, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.0%.

The very strong Bruquemand economy, worth 14.7 trillion Bruquemand Aurs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 64,823 Bruquemand Aurs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 182,981 per year while the poor average 18,382, a ratio of 10.0 to 1.

Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Woldlands's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Woldlands is ranked 34,424th in the world and 21st in The Western Isles for Most Politically Free, scoring 78.67 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
