The great Beaver

Population8.469 billion

FaithThe Holy Church of the Jungle Book


The Holy Empire of The great Beaver is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Ligneus Silvanus Maximus with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 8.469 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 Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bibrich. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming great Beaverian economy, worth 836 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 highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Basket Weaving. Average income is 98,717 Schillings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The carbon tax fund gladly supplies warm blankets when the poor can't pay their heating bills, five-hundred-twenty-five-thousand-six-hundred revivals is how theatre-goers measure a year, elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, and boys who take just one date to the high school prom are called 'losers'. 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 7,373rd in the world and 7th in Azure Watester Federation for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 91.08 Effective Tax Rate.
