Outer Birdland

Population3.684 billion

LeaderDer Deomcratische Rat


The Protectorate of Outer Birdland is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Der Deomcratische Rat with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.684 billion Outer Birdlandians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zaunkönigshafen. The average income tax rate is 27.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Outer Birdlandian economy, worth 119 trillion Birds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 32,360 Birds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Candidates for public office painstakingly research their family trees to ensure their eligibility, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, the Federal Council of Outer Birdland has been announced as the new Head of State, and Outer Birdland has designated Zaunkönigshafen as its capital city. Crime is totally unknown. Outer Birdland's national animal is the Wren, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secularism.

Outer Birdland is ranked 57,447th in the world and 21st in New West Indies for Most Stationary, with 212.7685791058 Days.
