Middle Pitburn

The Republic of Middle Pitburn is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 636 million Middle Pitburnians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 67.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Middle Pitburnian economy, worth 56.8 trillion florins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 89,235 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials, the government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region, and space shuttles are lying silent on the runway till the Space Agency can work out how to fit a creche and a meditation room into their next spacecraft. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 234,253rd in the world and 7,644th in The East Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -11.83 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
