Loveable Dogs

Population17.231 billion



The Nuclear Wasteland of Loveable Dogs is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Pugsley with a fair hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 17.231 billion Loveable Dogsians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pugsburg. The average income tax rate is 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Loveable Dogsian economy, worth a remarkable 3,410 trillion Treats a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 197,910 Treats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced, schoolchildren are divided over Pugsley's "Why Tigers are Cooler than Lions" speech, imitation is the sincerest form of felony, and vital intelligence-gathering activities are often put on hold for Call of Honor tournaments. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Loveable Dogs's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Loveable Dogs is ranked 58,597th in the world and 70th in Conch Kingdom for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 245,341 Standard Monetary Units.
