“To each his own”
|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Regional Influence: Squire
Location: The East Pacific
The Rogue Nation of Wendelandia is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its smutty television, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.66 billion Wendelandians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hugemungus. The average income tax rate is 16.1%.
The strong Wendelandian economy, worth 268 trillion kronor a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Cheese Exports, and Retail. Average income is 73,398 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.
The installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused, senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, foreign leaders with unpaid parking tickets are often refused entry, and neon signs promoting safe driving often distract drivers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Wendelandia's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
