A Leaf on the Wind

Population3.29 billion

LeaderKhosrow Tam


The Watch how I Soar Nation of A Leaf on the Wind is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Khosrow Tam with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.29 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 large, 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 61.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Leaf on the Windian economy, worth 109 trillion lire a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 33,258 lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fly fishermen are legally forbidden from using electronic lures, spoiler warnings are now given out before political speeches, welfare funding has recently gone through the roof, and grumpy old house owners demand that pedestrians get off their footpaths. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 Zoroastrianism.

A Leaf on the Wind is ranked 68,853rd in the world and 3,416th in the Rejected Realms for Most Stationary, with 106.29255697272 Days.
