Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Queen's State of Poplar Grove is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 13.223 billion Poplar Groveans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 79.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Poplar Grovean economy, worth 59.3 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 4,484 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, none has been named as Poplar Grove's national religion, the government is cutting back on the number of political prisoners executed each year, and the deer is a protected species. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Poplar Grove's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is none.

Poplar Grove is ranked 153,496th in the world and 1,566th in Ancient Lands for Most Armed, with 0.16 Weapons Per Person.
