A Leaf on the Wind

Population5.271 billion

LeaderEphraim Barnes


The Watch how I Soar Nation of A Leaf on the Wind is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ephraim Barnes with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.271 billion BrownCoats love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Serenity. The average income tax rate is 65.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Leaf on the Windian economy, worth 179 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 34,030 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Real power lies not in the debating room but with those who decide what is debated, citizens are frequently searched for illegal weapons, animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs, and retail stores are known for creating their own oddly-similar holidays in the months preceding any major festivity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. A Leaf on the Wind's national animal is the Parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Mirandaism.

A Leaf on the Wind is ranked 81,119th in the world and 2,303rd in the Rejected Realms for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,372.91 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
