|Leader||Minister-president Konrad Scholz|
The Grand Duchy of Whitmarche is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Minister-president Konrad Scholz with an even hand, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 1.366 billion Whitmarchers are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ricsfurt. The average income tax rate is 73.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient Whitmarchean economy, worth 56.3 trillion guilders a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 41,246 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Catholicism has been named as Whitmarche's national religion, a life spent suffering in silence is considered noble, 1% of global paper production is bound for the National Archive, and old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Whitmarche's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.
