Podzol Party

Population618 million

AnimalWolf Fox

The Taiga archipelago of Podzol Party is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 618 million Podzolians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Environment, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.4%.

The strong Podzol economy, worth 35.2 trillion Leaves a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 56,997 Leaves, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

College students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, voting is voluntary, and cars are banned. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Podzol Party's national animal is the Wolf Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Podzol Party is ranked 166,431st in the world and 997th in Europe for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 170.69 Tourists Per Hour.
