|Animal||Windows 8 fish|
The Microsoft Corporation of The Island of Windowstopiaoplis is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Rory Gates with an even hand, and notable for its feral children, avant-garde cinema, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.365 billion Windowstopiaoplisians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Redmond. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 26.2%.
The frighteningly efficient Windowstopiaoplisian economy, worth 220 trillion Xps a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 93,393 Xps, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 621,078 per year while the poor average 5,358, a ratio of 115 to 1.
Business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, the banshee wail foretells skies of death, only criminals carry guns, and foreign governments are threatened if they so much as mention the word "election". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Island of Windowstopiaoplis's national animal is the Windows 8 fish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
