Wheathi Envoy IL

Population598 million


The Protectorate of Wheathi Envoy IL is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The quiet, industrious population of 598 million Wheathites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 53.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Wheathi economy, worth 5.98 trillion gūīlders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Furniture Restoration, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 10,008 gūīlders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wheathi Envoy IL's national animal is the catshark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Wheathi Envoy IL is ranked 120,625th in the world and 10th in The Great Storm for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring zero on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
