Congrats to Murphtannia, January's Featured Nation!
The United Kingdom of Murphtannia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Murphy with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.131 billion Murphtannians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Birmingham. The average income tax rate is 70.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Murphtannian economy, worth 92.1 trillion pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 81,469 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Murphtannia's heavy congestion charges are the bane of motorists' lives, commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies, the nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts, and scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Murphtannia's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Murphism.
A younger face around the Islands, Murphtannia has made themselves helpful in a variety of departments as they've become Emissary to Forest, joined TITO, and recently run for public office. Congratulations to our newest Featured Nation, as chosen by DMoE Kohnhead!
I’d like to personally congratulate President Trump for being the most obnoxious, annoying, and treasonous president. Tsk tsk tsk. Abusing his powers in the final days of his presidency and accepting money for pardons is unpresidential behavior.
I love that issue, it is the easiest way to get a space program
Some of the more western nations aren’t online and I went to sleep
