|Leader||Präsident Harry Passehl|
The United Socialist States of Wirkungsgrad is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Präsident Harry Passehl with a fair hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.88 billion Wirkungsgradians 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 enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Leistung. The average income tax rate is 85.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Wirkungsgradian economy, worth 906 trillion Währungs a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 102,133 Währungs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials, corporate executives continue to enjoy generous tax benefits while the public is taxed to the hilt, CEOs can't hear the term 'Fire Sale' without bursting into tears, and footballers are doing aerobics in the sauna to build their hot weather endurance. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wirkungsgrad's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Naturwissenschaft.
