West Sylvania

Population14.633 billion

LeaderMark Luther

The Into Nordic of West Sylvania is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mark Luther with a fair hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, rampant corporate plagiarism, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.633 billion Westsylvanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sententia. The average income tax rate is 99.8%.

The enormous but inefficient West Sylvanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,064 trillion Ennats a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 141,091 Ennats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Large sections of West Sylvania have been named national reserves to protect the native tribes living there, children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary, more than one company makes the board game Monopoly, and computer users are buried daily in thousands of unsolicited emails. Crime is totally unknown. West Sylvania's national animal is the Zebra Spider, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

West Sylvania is ranked 169,521st in the world and 9,049th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -1028.57 on the Hayek Index.
