Islands of Washington

Population5.1 billion

LeaderIkumi Mayuko


The Imperial Kaiserreich of Islands of Washington is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Ikumi Mayuko with an iron fist, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.1 billion Washtopians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skasettchester. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 27.8%.

The powerhouse Washtopian economy, worth 572 trillion Yen a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 112,185 Yen, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 359,102 per year while the poor average 26,604, a ratio of 13.5 to 1.

Main battle tanks stalk the woods of Islands of Washington in search of Eagles, cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy, the police think a properly conducted criminal investigation is a real pain, and extraordinary rendition is nothing out of the ordinary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Islands of Washington's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Buddhism.

Islands of Washington is ranked 118,719th in the world and 5,190th in The North Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 48 Insults Per Minute.
