The Free Land of Birch 100 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its pith helmet sales, lack of airports, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.015 billion Birch 100ians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 58.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but stagnant Birch 100ian economy, worth 26.2 trillion leaves a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 8,695 leaves, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Colonial subjects have Birch 100ian culture shoved down their throats, the nation is wading into dangerous waters, prison visits increase substantially during election years, and truancy officers have a hard time catching children trained in advanced camouflage skills. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Birch 100's national animal is the tree, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
