Headpat Central

Population6.392 billion

CapitalHeadpat City


The Compassionate Republic of Headpat Central is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.392 billion Headpat Centralians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Headpat City. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Headpat Centralian economy, worth a remarkable 1,456 trillion florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 227,936 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers, criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, and there has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Headpat Central's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Headpat Central is ranked 4,412th in the world and 91st in The East Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 227,936.48 Standard Monetary Units.
