Western Wakayama

Population596 million


The Republic of Western Wakayama is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 596 million Western Wakayamen hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 33.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Western Wakayaman economy, worth 58.8 trillion florins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 98,587 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The government's fruit business reeks of rotting produce and corruption, a murderous reputation can revitalise a flagging celebrity career, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, and ambulances aren't allowed to overtake hearses. Crime is almost non-existent. Western Wakayama's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Western Wakayama is ranked 188,885th in the world and 412th in The Free Nations Region for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 225.77 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
