Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Queen's State of Rodeo Girl is a gargantuan, safe nation, notable for its state-planned economy, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 19.516 billion Rodeo Girlians enjoy great social freedoms and frequent elections, where the majority of the populace regularly votes to increase its benefits at the expense of various hapless minorities.

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 71.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Rodeo Girlian economy, worth 73.5 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 3,764 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

An underground movement of cigarette smokers has sprung up in response to a government ban, families are only permitted to have one child, the mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, and otherwise healthy people are being sent to internment camps because they have VODAIS. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rodeo Girl's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rodeo Girl is ranked 115,271st in the world and 1,278th in Ancient Lands for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 24.25 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
