Morton-Pashby

Population271 million

The Commonwealth of Morton-Pashby is a huge, safe nation, notable for its compulsory vegetarianism, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 271 million Morton-Pashbyians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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

The strong Morton-Pashbyian economy, worth 16.3 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 60,069 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, Leader's family members carry literal get-out-of-jail-free cards, and the government funds large training centres to turn Dogs into functioning members of society. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Morton-Pashby's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Morton-Pashby is ranked 142,074th in the world and 7,699th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 7.89 Obesity Rate.
