Pixies on Toadstools

Population28.782 billion

CapitalThe Magic Faraway Tree
LeaderMr Whatzisname


The Rapture of Pixies on Toadstools is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Mr Whatzisname with an iron fist, and remarkable for its national health service, complete lack of public education, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 28.782 billion Pixies enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The minute, corrupt, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Magic Faraway Tree. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Pixie economy, worth a remarkable 7,173 trillion blytons a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 249,246 blytons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

CEOs and corporate executives are frequently found striking for better stock options, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around The Magic Faraway Tree, Max Barry is this year's Miss Pixies on Toadstools, and speaking out against the government is punishable by flogging. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Pixies on Toadstools's national animal is the hare, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is magic.

Pixies on Toadstools is ranked 19,180th in the world and 122nd in Forest for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
