The Father-Land

Population35.637 billion



The Republic of the Commonwealth of The Father-Land is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Weston with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 35.637 billion Landians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pittsburgh. The average income tax rate is 81.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Father-Landian economy, worth a remarkable 6,008 trillion Landies a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 168,599 Landies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The citizenship exam requires years of study to actually pass, soldiers on first dates introduce themselves only by their ranks and serial numbers, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, and the only science is political science. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Father-Land's national animal is the Penguin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Father-Land is ranked 237,659th in the world and 5,496th in the West Pacific for Best Weather, with -8 Meters Of Sunlight.
