Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The People's Republic of Birchwater is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 23.787 billion 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.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Birchwater City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The large but stagnant Birchwaterian economy, worth 598 trillion flugles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 25,157 flugles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, the mob and the police have recently had numerous clashes in the back alleys of Birchwater's cities due to the government's steadfast anti-casino stance, and graffiti graces every city's streets. Crime is totally unknown. Birchwater's national animal is the Black-capped Chickadee, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Birchwater is ranked 1st in Osiris and 15th in the world for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 2,296 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
