The Arboreal Tangle of Bigstickistan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Magnus Johannson with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 4.82 billion Bigstickistanii hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grand Baton. The average income tax rate is 30.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Bigstickistanian economy, worth 696 trillion tally sticks a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 144,524 tally sticks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.
The nation refuses to provide international aid, the military is researching proton packs and PK-meters to combat "unseen enemy forces", angry citizens complain that there isn't enough geographical diversity on the new banknotes, and lifeguards are stationed on the streets during rainstorms. Crime is totally unknown. Bigstickistan's national animal is the phasmatodea, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Totemism.
