Putins Guard

Population13.346 billion


The Borderlands of Putins Guard is a gargantuan, orderly nation, remarkable for its burgeoning owl population. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 13.346 billion Putins Guardians 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, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 22.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Putins Guardian economy, worth 369 trillion Roblevs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 27,697 Roblevs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Putins Guard's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Putins Guard is ranked 227,322nd in the world and 3rd in Big Boy Bulgaria League for Smartest Citizens, with 14.09 quips per hour.
