United Qwebland

Population1.566 billion

LeaderThe Lorax


The Federation of United Qwebland is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Lorax with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, pith helmet sales, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.566 billion Qweblandians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Evyom. The average income tax rate is 65.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Qweblandian economy, worth 213 trillion eQwebs a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 136,218 eQwebs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, atheist missionaries spread doubt overseas, anything is permissible when wearing latex gloves, and edutainment video games are taking United Qwebland's students to the next level. Crime is totally unknown. United Qwebland's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

United Qwebland is ranked 128,801st in the world and 5,178th in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -40.93 on the Hayek Index.
