The Federal Republic of Scouseland

Population2.189 billion

LeaderJohn Lennon


The Empire of The Federal Republic of Scouseland is a massive, safe nation, ruled by John Lennon with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.189 billion Scousers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Liverpool. The average income tax rate is 71.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Scouse economy, worth 178 trillion Quid a year, is highly specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 81,485 Quid, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The WhoTube comments section has gone strangely quiet, "Idol-Worship for the Apathetic" workshops are cancelled when no-one bothers to show up, things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication, and annual Formula One races bring the capital to a screeching halt. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Federal Republic of Scouseland's national animal is the Liverbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Ringoism.

The Federal Republic of Scouseland is ranked 231,467th in the world and 9,319th in The North Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -9.63 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
