The Democratic Republic of Chickenbut is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by watermelon with a fair hand, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.851 billion Chickenbutians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of cacafuego. The average income tax rate is 18.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient Chickenbutian economy, worth 77.0 trillion bananas a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 41,602 bananas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
Roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration, Chickenbut's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, and catholicism has been named as Chickenbut's national religion. Crime is totally unknown. Chickenbut's national animal is the heron, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is catholicism.
