Willow Gate

The Kingdom of Willow Gate is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, national health service, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate population of 465 million Willow Gateans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 79.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Willow Gatean economy, worth 25.4 trillion florins a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 54,663 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, monocled merchants with funny accents are applying for Willow Gatean citizenship in droves, the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", and it is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Willow Gate's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Willow Gate is ranked 127,702nd in the world and 3,259th in the West Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 1,119.07 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
