The Wooloo Pact

Population648 million

The IWK factbook Puppet of The Wooloo Pact is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The democratic, devout population of 648 million Wooloo Pactians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 66.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Wooloo Pactian economy, worth 19.6 trillion wooloo dollars 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 30,235 wooloo dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, getting an autograph has become harder than ever, tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Wooloo Pact's national animal is the Wooloo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Wooloo Pact is ranked 79,710th in the world and 70th in Isle Of Wooloo Kingdom for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 936.68 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
