Population3.673 billion


The Democratic States of Wettelrode is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its digital currency, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.673 billion Wettelrodeans 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 67.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Wettelrodean economy, worth 211 trillion Potatos a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Information Technology, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 57,644 Potatos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political detractors refer to Leader as 'that Bigtopian puppet', young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangeness and Sorcery, most ambassadors from Wettelrode retire only a few years after being appointed, and foreign policy is to avoid standing up to bullies. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wettelrode's national animal is the Marmot, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wettelrode is ranked 8,548th in the world and 469th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.56 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
