Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Democratic Republic of Walist is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ritual sacrifices, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 773 million Walistians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Little Ivywood. The average income tax rate is 66.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Walistian economy, worth 57.5 trillion Krons a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 74,441 Krons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Private business has started paving paradises and putting up parking lots, the government merely sends empty platitudes whenever natural disasters strike foreign nations, flu research is commonly shut down for fear of creating a superbug, and almost every singles' party has a clergy and courtesans theme. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Walist's national animal is the Swan, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Walist is ranked 35,802nd in the world and 1st in Northpass for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 129.45 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
