Wellington Bingbong

Population741 million


AnimalDwarf Tiger

The Oppressed Peoples of Wellington Bingbong is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 741 million Wellington Bingbongians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Welfare, Law & Order, and Environment also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Honkelby. The average income tax rate is 72.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Wellington Bingbongian economy, worth 72.7 trillion Tugnuts 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 a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. 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 98,053 Tugnuts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nobody ever seems to enter or leave the armour-plated flying castle that serves as the seat of government, the "swords to plowshares" policy has created a generation of farmers that can kill a yak from 200 yards away, emigrants arrive on foreign shores with nothing but pocket sand, and the serf suggestion box would work better if more serfs were literate. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wellington Bingbong's national animal is the Dwarf Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wellington Bingbong is ranked 8,484th in the world and 191st in the West Pacific for Best Weather, with 237 Meters Of Sunlight.
