LeaderEl Wolfo


The Empire of Wolfsmark is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by El Wolfo with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.741 billion Wolfsmarkians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wolfania. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.6%.

The strong Wolfsmarkian economy, worth 105 trillion Wolfmarks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 60,757 Wolfmarks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 428,761 per year while the poor average 2,901, a ratio of 147 to 1.

El Wolfo has just been declared ruler of Wolfsmark in an international press conference, Failure has been named as Wolfsmark's national religion, the request to "give us our daily bread" can only be fulfilled six days out of seven, and abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Wolfsmark's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Failure.

Wolfsmark is ranked 134,862nd in the world and 2nd in Empire of Galea for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -4.24 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
