Tira Picoptera

Population974 million


The Republic of Tira Picoptera is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service. The quiet, industrious population of 974 million Tira Picopterans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 34.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Tira Picopteran economy, worth 35.4 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 36,328 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tira Picoptera's national animal is the porpoise, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Tira Picoptera is ranked 144,625th in the world and 2nd in The many Allies of Wercas for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 1,110.45 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
