OverviewFactbookPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The United Kingdom of Weihbach is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by King Winston V with a fair hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, digital currency, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 6.316 billion Weihbachians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Felses. The average income tax rate is 77.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Weihbachian economy, worth 364 trillion Euros a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 57,706 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Medical lawsuits are out of control, coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list, signs saying "No Poor People or Weirdoes" are common outside shops and cafés, and many feel that the government's ban on cars to combat reckless driving was "a tad excessive". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Weihbach's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Weihbach is ranked 245,806th in the world and 342nd in Wintreath for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -53.71 on the Hayek Index.
