Ancient Canines

The Kingdom of Ancient Canines is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 169 million canines are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 38.4%.

The strong canid economy, worth 11.2 trillion bones a year, is dominated by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Pizza Delivery, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 66,018 bones, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 232,761 per year while the poor average 13,548, a ratio of 17.2 to 1.

A petition to improve canid literacy is mostly signed with cross-marks, adult stores are all sold out of whips, exploding toys that leak battery acid are back in the shops after the government declared child safety 'over-rated', and you can bet your bottom dollar that gambling will cost you an arm and a leg. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ancient Canines's national animal is the hare-eating wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ancient Canines is ranked 191,678th in the world and 145th in Caer Sidi for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -7 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
