Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Protectorate of Owl Pellets is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its smutty television, anti-smoking policies, and national health service. The compassionate population of 20.776 billion Owl Pelletsians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous, liberal government is primarily concerned with Welfare, although Education, Industry, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 97.7%.

The thriving Owl Pelletsian economy, worth a remarkable 2,402 trillion owl pellets a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is an impressive 115,628 owl pellets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Skateboarding is considered a form of diplomacy, the Owl Pellets Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', Owl Pellets's famous countrysides are shrouded by wind farms, and animal control is going door-to-door releasing all pets back into the wild. Crime is totally unknown. Owl Pellets's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Owl Pellets is ranked 104,220th in the world and 777th in Europeia for Most Extreme, scoring 12.92 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
