Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The People's Republic of Birchwater is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, rampant corporate plagiarism, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 24.538 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 613 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 25,007 flugles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

X-Files ratings have hit an all-time low, the government's official stance on religion is that it is so very silly, same-sex marriages are increasingly common, and Max Barry is this year's Miss 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 1st in Osiris and 13th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring 1,292 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
