Saddled Hawk

Population5.455 billion


Animalred-tailed hawk

The Federation of Saddled Hawk is a colossal, genial nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.455 billion Saddled Hawks enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Amicus. The average income tax rate is 72.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Saddled Hawkian economy, worth 492 trillion Saddles a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 90,220 Saddles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Referenda are held for every conceivable government action, the government has been criticized for giving away Saddled Hawk's territory to anyone who claims it, the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, and it is not politically correct to suspect that a serially convicted burglar might steal again. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saddled Hawk's national animal is the red-tailed hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Saddled Hawk is ranked 222,203rd in the world and 1st in Scared Protectorate for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.28 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
