Wit Noreis

Population1.714 billion

LeaderMichael Collins


The Federation of Wit Noreis is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Michael Collins with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, compulsory vegetarianism, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.714 billion Wit Noreisians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Noreistosia. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wit Noreisian economy, worth 211 trillion rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 123,642 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has spent days debating the merits of a petition calling for a ban on sporks, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, and there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wit Noreis's national animal is the cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Wit Noreis is ranked 158,043rd in the world and 7,047th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -2.9 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
