Islands of Washington

LeaderIkumi Mayuko


The Imperial Kaiserreich of Islands of Washington is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Ikumi Mayuko with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.843 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 prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order and Healthcare are also considered important, 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 22.0%.

The powerhouse Washtopian economy, worth 399 trillion Yen a year, is broadly diversified and led 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 104,066 Yen, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 339,610 per year while the poor average 23,988, a ratio of 14.2 to 1.

Truancy officers have a hard time catching children trained in advanced camouflage skills, people choose marriage partners by buying a lottery ticket, bands of adventurers rove the countryside searching for monsters, and there is no such thing as an innocent fling in the Washtopian military. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Islands of Washington's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Buddhism.

Islands of Washington is ranked 25,103rd in the world and 879th in The North Pacific for Most Armed, with 1.91 Weapons Per Person.
