Waterfallean 3

Population393 million


The Republic of Waterfallean 3 is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 393 million Waterfallean 3ians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Education. The average income tax rate is 37.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Waterfallean 3ian economy, worth 13.4 trillion rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Automobile Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 34,058 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government hopes austerity will lead to prosperity, wedding bands come in pairs to form wedding manacles, disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown, and tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Waterfallean 3's national animal is the penguin.

Waterfallean 3 is ranked 46,110th in the world and 78th in Resuscitation for Highest Drug Use, scoring 93.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
