The Republic of Wirth is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 624 million Wirthians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Law & Order, although Education and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.0%.

The strong Wirthian economy, worth 36.3 trillion credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Automobile Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 58,184 credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 375,004 per year while the poor average 3,647, a ratio of 102 to 1.

Voting is voluntary, the tenet of free speech is held dear, Wirth's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, and the nation is currently revamping its entire education system. Crime is a problem. Wirth's national animal is the emu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wirth is ranked 10,734th in the world and 378th in Balder for Rudest Citizens, with 110.84 Insults Per Minute.
