GOLD BIRD

The United Kingdom of GOLD BIRD is a small, genial nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, democratic population of 29 million Britishes 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 tiny government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 9.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient GOLD BIRDian economy, worth 1.51 trillion Golds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 52,174 Golds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Cubicles often double as graves as citizens literally work themselves to death, the government has pledged that not one drop of its citizens' blood will be spilt, GOLD BIRD successfully hosted the Refugia Olympics, and parents who refuse to vaccinate their children are given a short jail sentence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. GOLD BIRD's national animal is the British tiger, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

GOLD BIRD is ranked 52,502nd in the world and 23rd in Refugia for Highest Poor Incomes, with 31,616.03 Standard Monetary Units.
