The Wiganese Islands

Population2.595 billion

LeaderStephen Dawber


The Republic of The Wiganese Islands is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Stephen Dawber with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.595 billion Wiganers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wigan. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Wiganese economy, worth 279 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 107,734 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 324,658 per year while the poor average 27,871, a ratio of 11.6 to 1.

Rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million dollars of property damage, one tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber, tax returns detail how many games of slots each citizen will be able to play with their refund, and dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Wiganese Islands's national animal is the robin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

The Wiganese Islands is ranked 11,902nd in the world and 667th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 84.18 on the Human Development Index.
