The Jolly Little Swallowtails of D073 is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Fisher King with an even hand, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 7.255 billion Fishers are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Peterboro. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.9%.

The frighteningly efficient fishing economy, worth 735 trillion Banks a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 101,338 Banks, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.

'To Regulate And Beyond' is the unofficial motto of the fishing Space Agency, the new Really Big Telescope has been praised for presenting pictures of bright dots in unprecedented detail, many of the unemployed have had the fight taken out of them, and judges are all-powerful. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. D073's national animal is the Cheetah, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Schizophrenia.

D073 is ranked 73,541st in the world and 27th in Windows for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 6.39 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
