Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The People's Republic of Birchwater is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 24.886 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 625 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 25,153 flugles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, the government has awarded itself a month-long holiday to celebrate its achievements, the state pays for care of easily preventable illnesses, and citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless. 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 37th in the world for Most Pacifist, scoring 6,877 on the Lennon-Springsteen Scale.
