Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The People's Republic of Birchwater is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 27.04 billion Birchwaterians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

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 stagnant Birchwaterian economy, worth a remarkable 1,687 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 62,407 flugles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Birchwater Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', snap elections are called over every minor impasse, the nation's official head of religious affairs is an atheist, and the government takes agricultural advice from a wasp-themed superhero. 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 8th in the world and 1st in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 5,959.15 Tourists Per Hour.
