Birch 45

Population3.031 billion


The Free Land of Birch 45 is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its unlimited-speed roads and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, cynical population of 3.031 billion Birch 45ians 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 large, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, with Defense, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 42.2%.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Birch 45ian economy, worth 83.9 trillion leaves a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Cheese Exports, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 27,666 leaves, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, schoolboys who turn to watch pretty girls go by are given detention, pootling steam trains carry delighted tourists and frustrated businessmen from city to city at a snail's pace, and a new Brasilistani government has become a daily report on the main evening news. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Birch 45's national animal is the tree, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Birch 45 is ranked 94,129th in the world and 33rd in Primitiveness for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 1,481.42 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
