Anatidaeland

The Federation of Anatidaeland is a small, safe nation, notable for its digital currency, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 26 million Anatidaelandians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 51.7%.

The Anatidaelandian economy, worth 1.17 trillion Marks a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 45,000 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

The masses are surrendering their civil liberties without complaint for the sake of shopping convenience, nose plugs are the latest Anatidaelandian fashion accessory, a large concrete wall is being built around the country's borders, and the government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Anatidaeland's national animal is the duck, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Anatidaeland is ranked 37,569th in the world and 1,561st in the South Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 88.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
