The Twelve Waterfalls

Population374 million


The Free Land of The Twelve Waterfalls is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 374 million Waterfallsians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 42.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Twelve Waterfallsian economy, worth 17.7 trillion droplets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 47,301 droplets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, and the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists. Crime is totally unknown. The Twelve Waterfalls's national animal is the Wookiee, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Twelve Waterfalls is ranked 76,176th in the world and 270th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.48 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
