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 smutty television, frequent executions, and conspicuous electricity pylons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 11.341 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 6.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Wantsumian economy, worth a remarkable 1,772 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 156,287 Imperial Soliduses, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 470,268 per year while the poor average 40,518, a ratio of 11.6 to 1.

Politicians have literally dirty hands from their extracurricular activities, Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, newspapers are celebrating His Excellency Emperor Cassius I saving over a million cats from trees, and carefully-staged grief is displayed by His Excellency Emperor Cassius I after national disasters. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 165,452nd in the world and 49th in The Commonwealth of Crowns for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -22.8 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
