Upper Tyrconnel

Population847 million

The Grand Duchy of Upper Tyrconnel is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 847 million Parrotheads enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of United Kingston. The average income tax rate is 50.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Upper Tyrconnelian economy, worth 74.0 trillion cowrie shells a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 87,377 cowrie shells, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Statue-sitting has replaced the stake-out as the dullest form of police duty, war criminals are given full state funerals, unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves, and short shrift is being given to applications for political asylum from illegal immigrants. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Upper Tyrconnel's national animal is the parrot, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Upper Tyrconnel is ranked 36,036th in the world and 1,003rd in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 63.19 on the Human Development Index.
