-tHe ChIcKeN-

Population56 million


The Republic of -tHe ChIcKeN- is a large, safe nation, notable for its restrictive gun laws, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 56 million -tHe ChIcKeN-ians 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 Law & Order, Administration, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 65.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The basket case -tHe ChIcKeN-ian economy, worth 607 billion rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Trout Farming and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 10,849 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children in school playgrounds can be heard chanting the hymns of the Order of Violet, the letters L, G, and B must never be grouped together, the government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, and the police crack down on tax evaders without mercy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. -tHe ChIcKeN-'s national animal is the beaver, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

-tHe ChIcKeN- is ranked 210,779th in the world and 10,376th in Chicken overlords for Rudest Citizens, with 11.58 Insults Per Minute.
