Thousand Branches

Population1.037 billion

LeaderMadam Vazz


The Militant Recycling Program of Thousand Branches is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Madam Vazz with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, unlimited-speed roads, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 1.037 billion Thousand Branchesians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hiljada. The average income tax rate is 75.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Thousand Branchesian economy, worth 32.2 trillion Berries a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 31,079 Berries, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Veterans are directed into environmental cleanup operations, there's never a spare chair in the retirement home, parking lots are littered with coffee cups and doughnut crumbs, and only rebellious teens who want to look cool and dangerous drink milk in public. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thousand Branches's national animal is the Honeybee, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Thousand Branches is ranked 33,069th in the world and 85th in The Order of the Grey Wardens for Safest, scoring 106.52 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
