Middle Pitburn

Population1.589 billion

The Republic of Middle Pitburn is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.589 billion Middle Pitburnians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 76.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Middle Pitburnian economy, worth 188 trillion florins a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 118,651 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Doctors accused of having no heart reply that cardiology isn't their speciality, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, increasing inclusiveness is a sign of the times, and there's no representation without taxation. Crime is totally unknown. Middle Pitburn's national animal is the parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Middle Pitburn is ranked 227,328th in the world and 7,972nd in The East Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 19.7 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
