Wild Space

Population3.452 billion

CapitalLira San
LeaderBelwarmec Al-Thorac


The Dominion of Wild Space is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Belwarmec Al-Thorac with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, digital currency, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.452 billion Wild Spaceans 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lira San. The average income tax rate is 90.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wild Spacean economy, worth 511 trillion Rums a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 148,226 Rums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them, the silencing of dissent speaks volumes about the quality of Wild Spacean democracy, government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, and it's never "just a game" with Wild Spacean sports fans. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wild Space's national animal is the Eye-Snatcher, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wild Space is ranked 3,210th in the world and 102nd in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 94.75 on the Human Development Index.
