The Empire of Wirkungsgrad is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Emperor Harry Passehl with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, otherworldly petting zoo, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 1.165 billion Wirkungsgradians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Leistung. The average income tax rate is 74.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Wirkungsgradian economy, worth 104 trillion Währungs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 89,943 Währungs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.
Many politicians are serving jail time for minor drug offenses, banana distribution among collective farm workers is an important topic in public discourse, army uniforms are replaced en masse to accommodate adult soldiers, and the poor are forced into bankruptcy by their energy bills. 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.
