The Dream of Kirby

Population4.968 billion

CapitalWaddle Dee Town


The Penultimate life-form of The Dream of Kirby is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Kirby with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, hatred of cheese, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 4.968 billion Puffies are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it prioritizes Environment, with Healthcare, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Waddle Dee Town. The average income tax rate is 94.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Puffy economy, worth 401 trillion Stars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Tourism industry. Average income is 80,859 Stars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pharmaceutical companies emphatically promise that "your pills are in the mail" rather than admit any supply shortfall, the country is rumored to be a Brancalandian puppet state, citizens must pay to enjoy The Dream of Kirby's pristine beaches, and the government is spending millions on alternative clean-burning fuels. Crime is totally unknown. The Dream of Kirby's national animal is the Cappy, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

The Dream of Kirby is ranked 242,781st in the world and 70th in Callista for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.02 crimes per hour.
