The Dream of Kirby

The Zombie Magical Land of The Dream of Kirby is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Kirby with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, infamous sell-swords, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.294 billion Puffies 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Star Allies City. The average income tax rate is 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Puffy economy, worth 154 trillion Frelliers a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 67,310 Frelliers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, students memorise knock-knock jokes for their mandatory twice-a-term Comedy Examinations, government spending has hit an all-time low, and homophobia is off the menu. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Dream of Kirby's national animal is the Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Puffy Christianity.

The Dream of Kirby is ranked 170,855th in the world and 26th in Callista for Largest Black Market, with 71.7 billion Standard Monetary Units.
