The Republic of The Witch of Hemwick
“By The People For The People”
|Category: Authoritarian Democracy|
Location: Canastralian Union
Regional Influence: Eminence Grise
The Republic of The Witch of Hemwick is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its state-planned economy, unlimited-speed roads, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 3.605 billion Witch of Hemwickians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Education. The average income tax rate is 59.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The large but inefficient Witch of Hemwickian economy, worth 131 trillion kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Furniture Restoration, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 36,543 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The government baselessly accuses foreign dignitaries of being assassins, many friends and relatives of Leader have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, the new airport at Mr. Giles' farm is panicking his sheep, and flash floods that dams could have controlled regularly ravage small towns in mountain valleys. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Witch of Hemwick's national animal is the cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
