Budgie Snugglers

Population5.134 billion


The Nakari of Budgie Snugglers is a colossal, orderly nation, remarkable for its frequent executions and absence of drug laws. The hard-working, cynical population of 5.134 billion Budgie Snugglersians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 25.1%.

The very strong Budgie Snugglersian economy, worth 349 trillion snuggles a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is 68,085 snuggles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Well-off serial killers write monthly checks to avoid jail time, fruit market traders let their stock spoil rather than reduce their prices at the day's end, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, and tipsy fans frequently invite themselves to the board meetings of sports clubs. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Budgie Snugglers's national animal is the budgie, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Budgie Snugglers is ranked 65,280th in the world and 1,981st in the Rejected Realms for Most Developed, scoring 61.14 on the Human Development Index.
