Bureau of WA Affairs

The Dominion of Bureau of WA Affairs is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 828 million Burkeans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Education, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 13.8%.

The thriving Burkean economy, worth 64.6 trillion Denarii a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Tourism. Average income is 77,994 Denarii, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 229,185 per year while the poor average 20,910, a ratio of 11.0 to 1.

No animal is considered endangered if there's another that looks kind of like it, hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, all government communication requires the imprimatur of the Truth Police, and school children are expected to know the names of all seven hundred native tribes and their cultural practices. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Bureau of WA Affairs's national animal is the Grey Wolf.

Bureau of WA Affairs is ranked 91,920th in the world and 2,189th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 2,679.63 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
