Owls of Season One

Population760 million

The Republic of Owls of Season One is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, compulsory gun ownership, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, cynical population of 760 million Owls of Season Oneans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 50.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Owls of Season Onean economy, worth 83.2 trillion Strigas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 109,516 Strigas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Agriculture is heavily subsidized by the government, shoppers have literally had their hands full since plastic bags were banned, the nation has an international reputation for compassion, and many suspect that the 'Whinny The Plop' children's magazine contains covert criticism of Leader. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Owls of Season One's national animal is the owl, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Owls of Season One is ranked 69,207th in the world and 10th in Strigiformes for Most Influential, scoring 262 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
