|Leader||Prime Minister Kurtis Nickel|
The Commonwealth of Wischen is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Kurtis Nickel with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.997 billion Wischenians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Araie. The average income tax rate is 70.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Wischenian economy, worth 110 trillion Windels a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Basket Weaving, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 55,104 Windels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, skateparks can be found in every city, rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes, and unwary hikers climbing the bluffs of Mount Araie make great practice for foreign snipers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wischen's national animal is the Blob Fish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Atheism.
