The Disputed Territories of Academy of Umbrellas is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its frequent executions, otherworldly petting zoo, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 236 million Hargreevesians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 68.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Hargreevesian economy, worth 15.3 trillion donuts a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 64,752 donuts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
Politicians preface their speeches with a declaration that any resemblance to speeches given by individuals living or dead is purely coincidental, the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, popular political cartoonists are thrown in jail for inciting dissent, and arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Academy of Umbrellas's national animal is the Luther-Back gorilla, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
