The Republic of Direwolf1

“Winter is Coming”

Regional Influence: Squire

Location: the South Pacific



Population3.355 billion


The Republic of Direwolf1 is a massive, genial nation, notable for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.355 billion Direwolf1ians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 79.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Direwolf1ian economy, worth 399 trillion euros a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 119,144 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prudishness is on the way out, there's never enough space in space, the tax department is having withdrawal symptoms, and park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Direwolf1's national animal is the Direwolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Direwolf1 is ranked 152,282nd in the world and 5,715th in the South Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 26.11 on the Rand Index.
