Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federated Imperial States of Wantsum is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by His Excellency Emperor Cassius I with an even hand, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, ubiquitous missile silos, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 10.475 billion Wantsumians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Erion City - Imperial District. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Wantsumian economy, worth a remarkable 1,656 trillion Imperial Soliduses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 158,142 Imperial Soliduses, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 492,080 per year while the poor average 39,076, a ratio of 12.6 to 1.

Foreign musicians that His Excellency Emperor Cassius I dislikes are turned away at the border, survivors of the Great Internet Flame War often recount horror stories of banhammers and DOS attacks, every product goes through extensive safety-testing by the government, and earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wantsum's national animal is the Imperial Black Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is determined by the Emperor.

Wantsum is ranked 2,536th in the world and 4th in The Commonwealth of Crowns for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 8,123.9 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
