The Democratic Republic of Walist is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by 𝔸 𝕂 with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, smutty television, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.365 billion Walistians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of 𝕃𝕚𝕥𝕥𝕝𝕖 𝕀𝕧𝕪𝕨𝕠𝕠𝕕. The average income tax rate is 25.3%.
The frighteningly efficient Walistian economy, worth 503 trillion 𝕂𝕣𝕠𝕟s a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 149,496 𝕂𝕣𝕠𝕟s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.
Human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants, the government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble, Walistian soldiers are assured their new ray-guns will finally power up after the next round of ominous chanting, and bargain hunters descend on disaster zones for a quick spot of grocery shopping. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Walist's national animal is the Ｔｉｇｅｒ, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ｓｅｃｕｌａｒｉｓｍ.
