West Clenpo

Population29 million

The Jingoistic States of West Clenpo is a small, orderly nation, notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 29 million West Clenpoans enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The minute, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Healthcare, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.7%.

The thriving West Clenpoan economy, worth 1.87 trillion Rums a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Pizza Delivery, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 64,473 Rums, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 299,533 per year while the poor average 8,339, a ratio of 35.9 to 1.

Citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, public urination is on the increase, and no one over the age of 35 has the slightest clue what is going on. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. West Clenpo's national animal is the Alcoholic Spider, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

West Clenpo is ranked 159,956th in the world and 33rd in Taijitu for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 296.74 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
