Birch 72

Population3 billion


The Free Land of Birch 72 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3 billion Birch 72ians 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Public Transport. The average income tax rate is 39.8%.

The sizeable but inefficient Birch 72ian economy, worth 97.7 trillion leaves a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Pizza Delivery, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 32,551 leaves, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Prisoners due for execution often use their final statement to complain about soggy bread rolls, nursing mothers are often arrested for indecent exposure, Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, and prisoners can't do number twos without their "toilet buddy" present. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Birch 72's national animal is the tree, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Birch 72 is ranked 80,009th in the world and 1st in Grand Puppet Storage Region for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 1,907.05 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
