Waterfallean 5

Population3.052 billion


The Republic of Waterfallean 5 is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.052 billion Waterfallean 5ians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Education. The average income tax rate is 41.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Waterfallean 5ian economy, worth 127 trillion francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 41,680 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Recruitment posters proclaim the army to be both fabulous and fashionable, married couples must call each other "darling" or risk a fine, organ donation is compulsory, and it is illegal to make racist remarks in public. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Waterfallean 5's national animal is the squirrel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Waterfallean 5 is ranked 102,805th in the world and 3rd in The Jewel Robotox Nations for Most Patriotic, with 13.62 flags saluted per person per day.
