OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The People's Republic of Birchwater is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its strong anti-business policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 2.565 billion, all of whom are zombies, Birchwaterians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Birchwater City. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Refugees from other nations are flocking to Birchwater's border, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, and organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region. Crime is totally unknown. Birchwater's national animal is the Black-capped Chickadee, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the flugle.

Birchwater is ranked 3,416th in Osiris and 115,214th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -66 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Birchwater is currently considering its options.
