Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Capital Territory of Walbard is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by HIRM King Carlisle I with an even hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, keen interest in outer space, and frequent executions. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful population of 19.388 billion Walbardians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Education, although Industry is also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Walbardian economy, worth a remarkable 3,552 trillion Walbardian Viras a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 183,236 Walbardian Viras, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Advertisers scramble to sponsor the broadcast of HIRM King Carlisle I's most personal functions, Walbard Barrier Island residents anxiously await their 'Bridge to Somewhere', bike rage is all the rage, and glamping Walbardians won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi. Crime is totally unknown. Walbard's national animal is the Walbardian Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Secular Humanism.

Walbard is ranked 125,492nd in the world and 6th in Walbard for Highest Drug Use, scoring 46 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
