Wat Blum

Population8.368 billion


The Joyous Federation of Wat Blum is a colossal, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.368 billion Waters 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 enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Blumie economy, worth a remarkable 1,567 trillion blumes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 187,280 blumes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Economic planning is exalted as a human art form, Wat Blum is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, and the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose. Crime is totally unknown. Wat Blum's national animal is the warbler, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wat Blum is ranked 201,498th in the world and 7,104th in Balder for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -10.24 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
