West Ibymaulerbarzistan

Population401 million


The Federation of West Ibymaulerbarzistan is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its avant-garde cinema, prohibition of alcohol, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 401 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 Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 51.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish West Ibymaulerbarzistanian economy, worth 12.1 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 30,139 heads, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

All telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, protestors are soaking piles of heads in blood to make a point about government incomes, and military barracks resemble five-star hotels. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded 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 158,721st in the world and 6,775th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -9.49 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
