|Leader||Hannes II Rochus|
The Dieresis-Holy Empire of Wochaystein is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Hannes II Rochus with an even hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic, devout population of 5.571 billion Wochaysteiners are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.
The large, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zuidren. The average income tax rate is 53.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The large but sluggish Wochaysteiner economy, worth 136 trillion golds 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 Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Soda Sales. Average income is 24,429 golds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Hannes II Rochus has just been declared ruler of Wochaystein in an international press conference, Christianity has been named as Wochaystein's national religion, forty-year-old men are asked for their ID before watching the latest pony cartoon movies, and politicians suffer insomnia after a former small-town mayor released her searing bestseller 'Deboning Political Turkeys: Primed for Minister'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wochaystein's national animal is the shrew and its national religion is Christianity.
