The Dream of Kirby

Population3.575 billion

CapitalStar Allies City


The Upgraded Edition of The Dream of Kirby is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Kirby with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, ban on automobiles, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.575 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, although Education, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Star Allies City. The average income tax rate is 92.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Puffy economy, worth 262 trillion Frelliers a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 73,309 Frelliers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Landless farmers wander forlornly in the government's many national parks, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, and the carbon tax fund gladly supplies warm blankets when the poor can't pay their heating bills. 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 26,733rd in the world and 18th in Callista for Lowest Crime Rates, with 77.07 law-abiding acts per hour.
