The Bird Sanctuarian

The Commonwealth of The Bird Sanctuarian is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 275 million Bird Sanctuarians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 57.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Bird Sanctuarianian economy, worth 6.26 trillion marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 22,780 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, wedding bands come in pairs to form wedding manacles, on graduation day the hats thrown in the air fly high enough to stun passing pigeons, and the mob vote is a crucial electoral demographic. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Bird Sanctuarian's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Bird Sanctuarian is ranked 37,398th in the world and 3rd in The Bird Sanctuary for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,138.42 Tourists Per Hour.
