The great Beaver

The Holy Empire of The great Beaver is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Ligneus Silvanus Maximus with an even hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 5.972 billion Great Beaverians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bibrich. The average income tax rate is 77.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse great Beaverian economy, worth 559 trillion Schillings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 93,676 Schillings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's a lot of mouth-breathers about these days, posters of politicians in sensual poses can be found on the walls of teenagers' rooms, the police are destroying all photographic evidence of their own existence, and religious leaders order congregants to love any neighbour who is just like themselves. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The great Beaver's national animal is the beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Holy Church of the Jungle Book.

The great Beaver is ranked 11,192nd in the world and 16th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 6 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
