The Republic of Isle Willte is a colossal, orderly nation, notable for its enslaved workforce, state-planned economy, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.309 billion Isle Willteans 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 92.5%.
The frighteningly efficient Isle Willtean economy, worth a remarkable 1,303 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 245,448 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 793,261 per year while the poor average 57,393, a ratio of 13.8 to 1.
Voters must frequently select what they view as the lesser of two evils on the ballot, blind dates tend to result in bruised shins, family trees become bare as entire branches are lopped off, and the military is plagued with unethical researchers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Isle Willte's national animal is the horse, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
