Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The People's Republic of Birchwater is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ban on automobiles, and compulsory vegetarianism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 27.686 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 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 enormous but sluggish Birchwaterian economy, worth a remarkable 3,611 trillion flugles a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 130,440 flugles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events, foreign investment has dropped to a trickle after laws were passed preventing investors from taking their earnings abroad, conversion therapy coupons are a popular present for coming of age ceremonies, and the pursuit of wanted criminals ends at the entrance of the pay'n'spray garage as police refuse to enter any private property. 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 180,120th in the world and 255th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Avoided, scoring 0.11 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
