Western Noobx2

Population1.706 billion



The Federation of Western Noobx2 is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 1.706 billion Western Noobx2ians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Noobland. The average income tax rate is 64.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Western Noobx2ian economy, worth 51.6 trillion Guilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Cheese Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 30,240 Guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Research grant proposals read like political diatribes, workers tend to schedule naps during all-hands meetings, water fights now end with thousands dead, and death row is annually emptied to feed the nation's hunger for televised murder-games. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Western Noobx2's national animal is the Addax, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Western Noobx2 is ranked 44,389th in the world and 66th in Chicken overlords for Most Cultured, scoring 69 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
