Wegensburg

The Grand Duchy of Wegensburg is a very large, safe nation, renowned for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 161 million Wegensburgians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Administration, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 24.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Wegensburgian economy, worth 12.3 trillion Higlis 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Automobile Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 76,195 Higlis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Employees who skip lunch to avoid sub-par cafeteria food risk getting fired, politicians bribe ten-year-old geniuses to sit their aptitude tests, cricket farmers use magnifying glasses to fit every member of their herd with tiny tracking tags, and a new "thought police" branch is being developed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Wegensburg's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wegensburg is ranked 146,028th in the world and 870th in Europe for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 101,519 Standard Monetary Units.
