OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Republic of New Waltonburg is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.225 billion Waltonburgers are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gammelburgen. The average income tax rate is 76.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The New Waltonburgian economy, worth 62.9 trillion Waltonburg Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Cheese Exports. Average income is 51,351 Waltonburg Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Protests are legal but strictly supervised, it is against the rules of boxing to hit above or below the belt, it is a crime to offend someone's religious beliefs, and the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Waltonburg's national animal is the Otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

New Waltonburg is ranked 204,052nd in the world and 134th in Force for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -6.16 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
