The Kingdom of Firebird1470 is a huge, safe nation, notable for its hatred of cheese, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 416 million Labyrinthians 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 medium-sized, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 37.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but sluggish Firebird1470ian economy, worth 8.92 trillion Dinars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 21,447 Dinars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Firebird1470's national animal is the Minotaur.
