Ironica Butterfly

Population8.42 billion

LeaderForbes Wyoming


The Incorporated States of Ironica Butterfly is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Forbes Wyoming with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, infamous sell-swords, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 8.42 billion Ironica Butterflyians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 79.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ironica Butterflyian economy, worth 422 trillion aurelias a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 50,232 aurelias, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', elected officials who disagree with Forbes Wyoming have a lot of accidents, both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade, and high school boys are required to pass vigorous self-mastery and sensitivity training to graduate. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ironica Butterfly's national animal is the butterfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ironica Butterfly is ranked 19,310th in the world and 313th in 10000 Islands for Most Developed, scoring 83.56 on the Human Development Index.
