West Kerch

The Republic of West Kerch is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, lack of airports, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working population of 3.433 billion West Kerchians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 15.7%.

The thriving West Kerchian economy, worth 264 trillion Galleons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 77,129 Galleons, with the richest citizens earning 6.5 times as much as the poorest.

Doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, "What's the Frequency, Leader?" is a favorite phrase of backyard radio broadcasters when interrupting official diplomatic channels, there has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees, and the media have begun calling the government treasury "Leader's stash". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. West Kerch's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

West Kerch is ranked 52,771st in the world and 1,594th in the Rejected Realms for Most Developed, scoring 64.48 on the Human Development Index.
