Waikuri

Population62 million

The Republic of Waikuri is a large, safe nation, remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 62 million Waikuri'nhens enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 38.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Waikurian economy, worth 3.62 trillion Itás a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is 58,405 Itás, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government finds the idea of having an army to be rather distasteful, citizens who want to celebrate the holidays generally deck the halls with old newspaper trimmings and dirty socks, national park visitors are reporting a rash of poison ivy sightings, and Waikuri'nhens believe manners maketh the leader. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Waikuri's national animal is the Capybara, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Waikuri is ranked 109,084th in the world and 69th in The Social Liberal Union for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 1,119.46 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
