OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Kingdom of Watonan is a huge, genial nation, notable for its compulsory military service, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 228 million Watons are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 55.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Watonian economy, worth 6.03 trillion Brus a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 26,445 Brus, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Religious turf wars have caused frustrated police to pray for divine intervention, the Watonian delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...", citizens cannot change their light bulbs without approval from an international committee, and everybody's got wood thanks to Leader. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Watonan's national animal is the Dachshund, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Watonan is ranked 64,181st in the world and 4th in The Formidable force of the West End for Healthiest Citizens, with 4.48 bananas ingested per day.
