Wappa Plains Card Trust

Population397 million


The Republic of Wappa Plains Card Trust is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its pith helmet sales, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The quiet, industrious population of 397 million Wappa Plains Card Trustians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 22.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Wappa Plains Card Trustian economy, worth 17.9 trillion Cards a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 45,076 Cards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

'Totally Not Partisan News' is a line item on the government budget, government solves problems by tossing money at the nearest geek, employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, and Wappa Plains Card Trustian watches list strained wrists as a common side effect. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wappa Plains Card Trust's national animal is the Cards.

Wappa Plains Card Trust is ranked 160,007th in the world and 82nd in PowerPC for Largest Black Market, with 101 billion Standard Monetary Units.
