OverviewFactbookDispatchesPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Federation of Hospitaller West Indies is a very large, efficient nation, renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, public floggings, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 192 million West Hospitallers are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Spirituality, although Industry and Defense are also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.1%.

The frighteningly efficient West Hospitaller economy, worth 19.7 trillion West Hospitaller Livres a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and dominated by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 102,531 West Hospitaller Livres, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 929,819 per year while the poor average 1,321, a ratio of 703 to 1.

Military recruitment numbers are down as citizens object on 'moral grounds', mall countdown clocks warn that there are only 364 more shopping days until Maxxmas, voting district maps are said to resemble a tyrannosaurus eating the capital, and the line between man and woman is drawn with surgical precision. Crime is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Hospitaller West Indies's national animal is the Saint's Parrot, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Hospitaller West Indies is ranked 6,407th in the world and 17th in The Western Isles for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 98,327.75 Standard Monetary Units.
