Piper Town

Population193 million


The Rogue Nation of Piper Town is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 193 million Piper Townians 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 Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 58.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Piper Townian economy, worth 5.58 trillion krunas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Cheese Exports, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 28,886 krunas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars, people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, every week is blindness awareness week, and two inland cities have unveiled their new desalination plants. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Piper Town's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Piper Town is ranked 133,331st in the world and 4th in Oppression Union for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.55 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
