Hawk13

Population249 million

The Republic of Hawk13 is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its public floggings, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed population of 249 million Hawk13ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 36.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Hawk13ian economy, worth 10.0 trillion lire a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 40,335 lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Third world countries are rich in "I Love Hawk13 City" t-shirts, the news is showing footage of Leader bullying an old man to the point of tears, the Hawk13 City Prison Revue puts on a better stage show than anything in the Theatre District, and ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hawk13's national animal is the squirrel.

Hawk13 is ranked 69,764th in the world and 1,880th in Birb for Most Average, scoring 41.66 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
