Middle Pitburn

The Republic of Middle Pitburn is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 380 million Middle Pitburnians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 57.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Middle Pitburnian economy, worth 29.5 trillion florins a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 77,557 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Interest rates mysteriously drop whenever the CBMP Governor goes house hunting, saying "don't do anything that Leader wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, mall countdown clocks warn that there are only 364 more shopping days until Maxxmas, and 4-year-olds are often found reminiscing about the 'good old days'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Middle Pitburn's national animal is the parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Middle Pitburn is ranked 29,361st in the world and 937th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 5,430.3 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
