The Republic of Wascoitan in TBH is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 302 million Wascoitan in TBHians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 68.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but stagnant Wascoitan in TBHian economy, worth 2.17 trillion wascoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is 7,194 wascoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wascoitan in TBH's national animal is the Hydra, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
