Central Birdland

Population5.373 billion

LeaderDemocratischer Rat


The Social Democratic Republic of Central Birdland is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Democratischer Rat with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 5.373 billion Central Birdlandians 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, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zaunkönigsberg. The average income tax rate is 86.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Central Birdlandian economy, worth 568 trillion Birds a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 105,893 Birds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's been a banner year for local vexillology, the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, the contraband cigarette trade is lighting up across Central Birdland, and convicted murderers are free to walk the streets provided they attend rehabilitation classes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Central Birdland's national animal is the Wren, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Central Birdland is ranked 5,441st in the world and 12th in New West Indies for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 2,585.91 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
