Wessex and Cornwall

Population11.509 billion

LeaderFirst Minister


The Union of Wessex and Cornwall is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by First Minister with a fair hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.509 billion West Saxons are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bristol. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient West Saxon economy, worth a remarkable 1,700 trillion Pounds a year, is highly 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 147,785 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly, hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents, and the tightness of border controls in Wessex and Cornwall leave a little to be desired. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 205,961st in the world and 1,189th in Europe for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring zero on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
