King Henry IV

Population6.425 billion

CapitalLinn City
LeaderPresident X


The Republic of King Henry IV is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President X with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, prohibition of alcohol, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 6.425 billion Comrades 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Linn City. The average income tax rate is 94.8%.

The frighteningly efficient King Henry IVian economy, worth a remarkable 1,330 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 207,156 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, people who have had childhood imaginary friends are told they can't ever be trusted with guns, Air King Henry IV is rumored to receive more government funding than the King Henry IVian Air Force, and the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. King Henry IV's national animal is the Panda, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

King Henry IV is ranked 161,955th in the world and 9,164th in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 3.34 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
