The Psittacines

Population242 million

The Republic of The Psittacines is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 242 million Psittacinesians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 43.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Psittacinesian economy, worth 18.1 trillion Pellets a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 74,758 Pellets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past, prison visits increase substantially during election years, the subway is dead quiet in early afternoons, and the government has an entire department dedicated to staring at microscopes and writing down letters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Psittacines's national animal is the Sun Parakeet, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Psittacines is ranked 139,160th in the world and 225th in Conch Kingdom for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 88,104 Standard Monetary Units.
