A Leaf on the Wind

Population5.489 billion

LeaderEphraim Barnes


The Watch how I Soar Nation of A Leaf on the Wind is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Ephraim Barnes with a fair hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, avant-garde cinema, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.489 billion BrownCoats love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Serenity. The average income tax rate is 68.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Leaf on the Windian economy, worth 169 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Tourism, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 30,956 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government prides itself on being smug and condescending to idiots, Ephraim Barnes is too busy listening to praise to get any work done, the government funds large training centres to turn Parrots into functioning members of society, and elderly citizens regularly buy posh multimillion-Credits mansions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. A Leaf on the Wind's national animal is the Parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Mirandaism.

A Leaf on the Wind is ranked 168,898th in the world and 5,356th in the Rejected Realms for Rudest Citizens, with 32.07 Insults Per Minute.
