Western Calypso Islands

Population1.002 billion



The Republic of Western Calypso Islands is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Odysseus with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.002 billion Western Calypso Islandsians 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, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ogygia. The average income tax rate is 14.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Western Calypso Islandsian economy, worth 68.5 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 68,353 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Sofas are perpetually on sales that Must End Soon, in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, and criminals lock themselves in their mums' basements to avoid prison. Crime is totally unknown. Western Calypso Islands's national animal is the leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Western Calypso Islands is ranked 68,251st in the world and 2,126th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 2,268.55 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
