A Leaf on the Wind

Population4.205 billion

LeaderEphraim Barnes


The Watch how I Soar Nation of A Leaf on the Wind is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ephraim Barnes with a fair hand, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.205 billion BrownCoats are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Serenity. The average income tax rate is 60.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Leaf on the Windian economy, worth 136 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 32,357 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's always rabbit season, 'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song, burial ceremonies have become as routinised as tax forms, and real power lies not in the debating room but with those who decide what is debated. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. A Leaf on the Wind's national animal is the Parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Mirandaism.

A Leaf on the Wind is ranked 16,756th in the world and 304th in the Rejected Realms for Most Influential, scoring 1,904 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
