Widowed Land

Population26 million


The Republic of Widowed Land is a small, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 26 million Widowed Landians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 33.6%.

The very strong Widowed Landian economy, worth 1.28 trillion Hopes a year, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 49,325 Hopes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, hordes of tourists are ruining the environment, politicians are often seen drinking soft drinks at the end of every public address, and the price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Widowed Land's national animal is the taurus, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Widowed Land is ranked 68,428th in the world and 119th in Soviet Democracy for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 1,852.96 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
