The Isolationist Crows

Population413 million


The Kingdom of The Isolationist Crows is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its prohibition of alcohol and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical population of 413 million Crows are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 37.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Isolationist Crowsian economy, worth 16.3 trillion Rubies a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 39,458 Rubies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Metal detectors have been banned after a bottle cap caused a riot at the beach, international trade can be a pain to deal with, interest rates mysteriously drop whenever the CBIC Governor goes house hunting, and strange looking men with big red noses are found hiding behind bushes and inside dustbins. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Isolationist Crows's national animal is the Crow.

The Isolationist Crows is ranked 69,719th in the world and 449th in Europeia for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 94.34 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
