Wit Noreis

Population1.956 billion

LeaderMichael Collins


The Federation of Wit Noreis is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Michael Collins with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and frequent executions. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.956 billion Wit Noreisians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Noreistosia. The average income tax rate is 93.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wit Noreisian economy, worth 239 trillion rubles 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 122,397 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly, taxpayer-funded government ads are promoting Brancaland as a premier filming location, the seats at the back of the parliament are reserved for indigenous ministers, and the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wit Noreis's national animal is the cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Wit Noreis is ranked 214,905th in the world and 9,735th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -276.41 on the Hayek Index.
