OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Grand Duchy of Whitmarche is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Minister-president Konrad Scholz with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and daily referendums. The compassionate, devout population of 2.741 billion Whitmarchers are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ricsfurt. The average income tax rate is 80.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Whitmarchean economy, worth 128 trillion guilders a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 47,054 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hell is not always other people, Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, business leaders commend the government for enacting an emissions reduction strategy that reduces no Whitmarchean emissions at all, and school uniforms are compulsory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Whitmarche's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Whitmarche is ranked 221,448th in the world and 353rd in Anteria for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.31 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
