Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Great Empire of Western Suijen is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and suspicion of poets. The cynical, devout population of 15.632 billion Western Suijenians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Republic City. The average income tax rate is 67.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Western Suijenian economy, worth 508 trillion New Yuan a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 32,535 New Yuan, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, students cut up leftover New Yuan during Arts and Crafts, Leader has just been declared ruler of Western Suijen in an international press conference, and Western Suijen has designated Republic City as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Western Suijen's national animal is the suijen alligator, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Western Suijen is ranked 46,801st in the world and 1st in Empire of Calexico for Fattest Citizens, with 11.64 Obesity Rate.
