Kingdom of the Rook

Population6.573 billion

LeaderKing John I


The Constitutional Monarchy of Kingdom of the Rook is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King John I with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.573 billion Rooks 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, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hopewell. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Rookish economy, worth a remarkable 1,094 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 166,439 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It isn't only obsequious grandees who produce a lot of manure at state occasions, motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, and the slowest students feel vaguely targeted by their Mendelian Inheritance coursework. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kingdom of the Rook's national animal is the Rook, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secularism.

Kingdom of the Rook is ranked 49,424th in the world and 1,834th in The North Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 92 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
