Please Be Kind and Rewind

Population801 million

LeaderCarrie Onposing


The Queendom of Please Be Kind and Rewind is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Carrie Onposing with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, flagrant waste-dumping, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working population of 801 million Clerks enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Welfare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Strikapose. The average income tax rate is 31.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient VHS economy, worth 100 trillion Cassettes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 125,037 Cassettes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

All mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave, the government takes agricultural advice from a wasp-themed superhero, discarded pennies litter the streets, and multilingual concierges man empty inner city apartment blocks. Crime is totally unknown. Please Be Kind and Rewind's national animal is the Betamax, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Please Be Kind and Rewind is ranked 56,078th in the world and 115th in Spiritus for Nudest, with 156.5 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
