LeaderMorad Ibrahim


The Republic of Weeddialvon is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Morad Ibrahim with an even hand, and renowned for its aversion to nipples, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 4.948 billion Weeddialvonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Reykjavík. The average income tax rate is 75.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Weeddialvonian economy, worth 465 trillion Euros a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 94,104 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A soldier's body is a temple, the subway is dead quiet in early afternoons, future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence, and citizens ask "how many crooks could a nunchuck hook if a nun had nunchucks too?". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Weeddialvon's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Weeddialvon is ranked 251,169th in the world and 996th in Europe for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -82.56 on the Hayek Index.
