Western White Pine

The Republic of Western White Pine is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 668 million Western White Pineans 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 government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 63.6%.

The all-consuming Western White Pinean economy, worth 66.3 trillion deniers a year, is led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 99,234 deniers, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 399,927 per year while the poor average 16,456, a ratio of 24.3 to 1.

The new Sheep Supremacy Party is faring well in the polls, Leader has been seen stealthily slicing fifths off bread loaves, the government is attempting to impose a new national language on the public, and the nation leads Forest for unlikely accidents and truffle consumption. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Western White Pine's national animal is the sheep, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Western White Pine is ranked 189,996th in the world and 398th in Forest for Least Corrupt Governments, with 81.65 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
