Western Pacific Territories

Population9.425 billion

CapitalJake Pauls House


The Cringelord of Western Pacific Territories is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.425 billion Jake Paulers love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jake Pauls House. The average income tax rate is 80.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Western Pacific Territoriesian economy, worth 365 trillion blings a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 38,783 blings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All artwork is carefully screened for offensive material, children have taken to using semaphore in light of the recent mobile phone ban, international tensions are high as Western Pacific Territories threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens, and scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied dab. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Western Pacific Territories's national animal is the dab, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Western Pacific Territories is ranked 38,388th in the world and 1st in A sozera for Highest Economic Output, with 365 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
