Westport and Holland

Population490 million



The Kingdom of Westport and Holland is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 490 million Hollanders 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 large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Spirituality, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Amsterdam. The average income tax rate is 47.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Dutch economy, worth 18.8 trillion Euros a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 38,416 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Euthanasia is legal, the armed forces pride themselves on being conventional and predictable, hundreds of sailors ride the good ship Leader day after day, and retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Westport and Holland's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Westport and Holland is ranked 178,332nd in the world and 975th in Europe for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 41.59 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
