West Bridgeport

Population306 million


The Democratic Republic of West Bridgeport is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its infamous sell-swords, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 306 million West Bridgeportians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny, outspoken government prioritizes Industry, with Welfare, Education, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment are ignored. The average income tax rate is 9.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming West Bridgeportian economy, worth 28.2 trillion pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Retail. Average income is 92,137 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, in distant lands the nation is known as a lovely place that was even better in the good old days, violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, and crime is on the rise as online youths compete to vlog the most shocking scenes of violence. Crime is relatively low. West Bridgeport's national animal is the cow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

West Bridgeport is ranked 68,664th in the world and 2,943rd in the South Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 37.11 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
