Willing Mind

Population873 million



The Dominion of Willing Mind is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its compulsory military service, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 873 million Willing Mindians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arx-Anima. The average income tax rate is 89.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Willing Mindian economy, worth 114 trillion Fitzes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 131,169 Fitzes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A blood-red mark on the doorframe means a building must be passed over for destruction, news editors who eschew the state-approved superlatives for describing Leader tend to disappear, tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens, and gene-engineered sewerjacks don't smell but they do stink. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Willing Mind's national animal is the Slime, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Willing Mind is ranked 16,377th in the world and 520th in the South Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,144.47 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
