Wessex and Cornwall

Population9.24 billion

LeaderFirst Minister


The Union of Wessex and Cornwall is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by First Minister with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.24 billion West Saxons love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bristol. The average income tax rate is 97.9%.

The frighteningly efficient West Saxon economy, worth a remarkable 1,415 trillion Pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 153,210 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Wilderness-dwelling hermits are surprised to find railway stations on their front doorsteps, grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly, hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, and kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wessex and Cornwall's national animal is the Wyvern, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wessex and Cornwall is ranked 12,777th in the world and 184th in Europe for Highest Average Incomes, with 153,210.43 Standard Monetary Units.
