Headpat Central

Population4.059 billion

CapitalHeadpat City


The Compassionate Republic of Headpat Central is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.059 billion Headpat Centralians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Headpat City. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Headpat Centralian economy, worth 723 trillion florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 178,248 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year, there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Leader to meetings with foreign heads of state, and editorials that criticize the government are legally obligated to display the "pants on fire" warning. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Headpat Central's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Headpat Central is ranked 160,254th in the world and 5,752nd in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -26.08 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
