I decided to throw my own hat in the ring and found the nation of Whitmanistan (I told you it was a nerd alert.) Here are the stats (generated by answers to some questionare and changed by decisions made on daily issues):
The Democratic Republic of Whitmanistan is a tiny, pleasant nation, renowned for its burgeoning violin-playing bear population. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 5 million have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Social Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 14%. A large private sector is led by the Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports industries.
Crime is moderate, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Whitmanistan's national animal is the violin-playing bear and its currency is the lint.
