West Ibymaulerbarzistan

Population104 million


The Dictatorship of West Ibymaulerbarzistan is a very large, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 104 million West Ibymaulerbarzistanians 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, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 53.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant West Ibymaulerbarzistanian economy, worth 1.32 trillion heads 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 Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. 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 12,716 heads, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Saying the word 'eggplant' is now a criminal offense, military spending recently hit a new high, the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, and the government is encouraging violence on television. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. West Ibymaulerbarzistan's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

West Ibymaulerbarzistan is ranked 103,141st in the world and 6,244th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 64.55 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
