Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Commonwealth of Wildhurst is a very large, genial nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, hatred of cheese, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 119 million Wildhurstians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Administration, and Education. The average income tax rate is 68.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Wildhurstian economy, worth 2.94 trillion florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 24,726 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act, and fur coats have become the latest fashion trend. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wildhurst's national animal is the fox.

Wildhurst is ranked 133,415th in the world and 6,586th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -9.17 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
