Firebending Wymatha

Population1.267 billion

The Republic of Firebending Wymatha is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 1.267 billion Firebending Wymathans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 70.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Firebending Wymathan economy, worth 123 trillion Scarabs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 97,511 Scarabs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Acrimonious legal battles result during divorce proceedings, Leader's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site, devotion to God is only skin-deep, and the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Firebending Wymatha's national animal is the Werepig, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Firebending Wymatha is ranked 18,246th in the world and 1st in The City of Ba Sing Se for Most Developed, scoring 84.51 on the Human Development Index.
