The Father-Land

Population33.966 billion



The Republic of the Commonwealth of The Father-Land is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Weston with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, otherworldly petting zoo, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 33.966 billion Landians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pittsburgh. The average income tax rate is 75.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Father-Landian economy, worth a remarkable 6,072 trillion Landies a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 178,775 Landies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

The inside lane of every highway is for parked vehicles only, there is something rotten in the state of The Father-Land, politicians bribe ten-year-old geniuses to sit their aptitude tests, and couples kissing on the street are detained for 'unlawful exchange of genetic material'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Father-Land's national animal is the Penguin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Father-Land is ranked 20,964th in the world and 797th in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 6,063.74 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
