Pollos Othe

Population174 million

The Incorporated States of Pollos Othe is a very large, efficient nation, notable for its disturbing lack of elderly people, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The cynical population of 174 million Pollos Otheans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 63.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Pollos Othean economy, worth 12.6 trillion lire a year, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 72,635 lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Doctors accused of having no heart reply that cardiology isn't their speciality, political dissidents are cut off from essential services, a stocking with a crooked seam or a tie without a full Windsor knot are grounds for instant dismissal, and drug lords often avoid prison time by teaching "chemistry" classes to underprivileged youth. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pollos Othe's national animal is the cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pollos Othe is ranked 16,845th in the world and 740th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,353.09 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
