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, state-planned economy, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 24.318 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, 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 606 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 24,947 flugles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All forms of advertising are banned, Birchwater is building an army to protect its overseas territories, citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature', and Black-capped Chickadee is one of the most popular forenames in Birchwater. 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 3rd in Osiris and 17th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,536 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
