West Phlebacite

The Republic of West Phlebacite is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its deadly medical pandemics, unlimited-speed roads, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 10.915 billion West Phlebaciteans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 65.2%.

The frighteningly efficient West Phlebacitean economy, worth a remarkable 5,215 trillion hanks a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Retail, Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 477,809 hanks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,498,380 per year while the poor average 116,745, a ratio of 12.8 to 1.

Claiming to have performed the Heimlich Maneuver is a popular defense for assault charges, orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step, nose plugs are the latest West Phlebacitean fashion accessory, and citizens are bombarded with advertising from their compulsory miniature radios. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. West Phlebacite's national animal is the six legged unicorn, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

West Phlebacite is ranked 1,447th in the world and 15th in 10000 Islands for Most Avoided, scoring 532.58 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
