Wirlans Kros

Population1.372 billion

LeaderEmperor Lans


The Empire of Wirlans Kros is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Lans with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.372 billion Wirlans Krosians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kros. The average income tax rate is 83.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Wirlans Krosian economy, worth 142 trillion deniers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 104,047 deniers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Factories are regularly demolished to make way for low-cost housing areas, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, and the needs of the living outweigh the needs of the dead. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wirlans Kros's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wirlans Kros is ranked 65,461st in the world and 3,170th in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 23.65 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
