The Father-Land

Population32.455 billion



The Republic of the Commonwealth of The Father-Land is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Weston with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 32.455 billion Landians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pittsburgh. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 70.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Father-Landian economy, worth a remarkable 5,858 trillion Landies a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 180,511 Landies, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

Going on a diet invalidates your passport, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, online weather reports are predicting five years of glorious sunshine for The Father-Land, and escalators are avoided at all costs. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Father-Land's national animal is the Penguin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Father-Land is ranked 5,401st in the world and 126th in the West Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 143 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
