Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federated Imperial States of Wantsum is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by His Excellency Emperor Cassius I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 9.847 billion Wantsumians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

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 5.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Wantsumian economy, worth a remarkable 1,511 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 153,490 Imperial Soliduses, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 512,572 per year while the poor average 34,193, a ratio of 15.0 to 1.

The government is denying reports that criminals injected with experimental drugs have turned into monstrous supervillains, remote-control hang-gliding scarecrows patrol the skies to keep songbirds from leaving the nation's borders, hordes of unemployed lumberjacks have resorted to cutting down utility poles to satisfy their cravings, and an entourage of camarillas follow the royals around day and night. 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 40,089th in the world and 37th in The Commonwealth of Crowns for Longest Average Lifespans, with 66.2 Years.
