The Republic of West13 is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The quiet, industrious population of 881 million West13ians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 50.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient West13ian economy, worth 25.7 trillion marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Pizza Delivery, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 29,132 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, sneezing pedestrians are grabbed by alley-lurking doctors, ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, and devotion to God is only skin-deep. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. West13's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
