Worms-sovereignty was never ceded

Population305 million



The Free Land of Worms-sovereignty was never ceded is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 305 million worms are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mleborune. The average income tax rate is 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong wormian economy, worth 17.2 trillion gobs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Retail, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. Average income is 56,464 gobs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year, planespotters are emigrating in droves, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, and citizens can only enjoy the splendor of the natural world in designated 'Majesty Appreciation' zones. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Worms-sovereignty was never ceded's national animal is the Grub, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Worms-sovereignty was never ceded is ranked 49,806th in the world and 2nd in Gildern for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 4,370.75 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
