Kitchen Nation

Population7.43 billion

CapitalKitchen City


The People's Republic of Kitchen Nation is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by PhilmacFLy with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.43 billion Kitcheners enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kitchen City. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Kitchener economy, worth a remarkable 1,394 trillion Kitchencoins 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 major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 187,683 Kitchencoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The parliament building has installed a revolving door, a traveller who once stubbed a toe on an 'Air Brancaland' flight has been offered asylum, Max Barry is this year's Miss Kitchen Nation, and immigrants who carry knives on them are presumed to be chefs. Crime is totally unknown. Kitchen Nation's national animal is the Platypuss, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Kitchen Nation is ranked 138,869th in the world and 489th in The Communist Bloc for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -4.9 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
