Wad Thelan Sysky 1

Population501 million

CapitalWad City


The Republic of Wad Thelan Sysky 1 is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, pith helmet sales, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 501 million Wad Thelan Sysky 1ians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wad City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.4%.

The powerhouse Wad Thelan Sysky 1ian economy, worth 38.8 trillion pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 77,490 pounds, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 396,109 per year while the poor average 8,336, a ratio of 47.5 to 1.

Companies flee the nation rather than pay their fair share of taxes, doctors prescribe videos of political debates to patients with insomnia, citizens need a magnifying glass and color chart to distinguish between nearly identical brand labels, and the nation is famous for having one of the world's largest leopard hunting institutions. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Wad Thelan Sysky 1's national animal is the leopard, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Wad Thelan Sysky 1 is ranked 60,887th in the world and 138th in New Western Empire for Most Developed, scoring 61.79 on the Human Development Index.
