Location: the South Pacific



Population3.829 billion


The Republic of Direwolf1 is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.829 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 enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 83.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Direwolf1ian economy, worth 430 trillion euros a year, is quite specialized 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 112,547 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room, the tenet of free speech is held dear, teachers are routinely tested to keep their jobs, and politicians accost strangers in the street to ask their problems. 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 18,885th in the world and 572nd in the South Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 1,216.47 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
