Wellington Bingbong

Population773 million


AnimalDwarf Tiger

The Oppressed Peoples of Wellington Bingbong is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 773 million Wellington Bingbongians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Welfare, Law & Order, and Environment also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Honkelby. The average income tax rate is 72.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Wellington Bingbongian economy, worth 76.2 trillion Tugnuts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 98,548 Tugnuts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines, bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, prisoners pray grey skies are gonna clear up, and overhead luggage compartments on planes sometimes conceal dimunitive intelligence officers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wellington Bingbong's national animal is the Dwarf Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wellington Bingbong is ranked 125,529th in the world and 1,186th in the West Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 76.2 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
