|Animal||Paradise bird and Kangaroo|
The Commonwealth of Walsh and Taika Islands is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its absence of drug laws. The democratic population of 256 million Walshian and Taikis are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 26.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient Walsh and Taika Islandsian economy, worth 7.89 trillion Dollars a year, is led by the Soda Sales industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Retail, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 30,800 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas, all footpaths have tollbooths, and enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity. Crime is almost non-existent. Walsh and Taika Islands's national animal is the Paradise bird and Kangaroo, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.
