The Free State of Westphalia

The Constitutional Monarchy of The Free State of Westphalia is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 220 million Free Westphalians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 41.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Free Westphalian economy, worth 18.6 trillion Free Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 84,321 Free Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The typical murderer weighs 150kg and has hairy arms, young people devote their entire lives to the faith, the Free Westphalian delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...", and Free Westphalian housewives become unusually flustered when thinking about Leader. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Free State of Westphalia's national animal is the Free Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Free State of Westphalia is ranked 145,151st in the world and 10th in sil colony for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 48.04 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
