The Military Junta of Wishper

“No Mercy With The Guilty” Luna

Location: Lazarus

The Military Junta of Wishper is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Luna with a fair hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 12.335 billion Wishperians 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 government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zendar. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Wishperian economy, worth a remarkable 2,071 trillion Bits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 167,926 Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Wanting a better life for your child is prohibited by a clause in the criminal code, citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, annual Formula One races bring the capital to a screeching halt, and the nation leads Lazarus for unlikely accidents and truffle consumption. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wishper's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lunarism.

Wishper is ranked 152,976th in the world and 5,613th in Lazarus for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -10.86 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
