A Leaf on the Wind

Population5.211 billion

LeaderEphraim Barnes


The Watch how I Soar Nation of A Leaf on the Wind is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ephraim Barnes with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.211 billion BrownCoats 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 large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Serenity. The average income tax rate is 62.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Leaf on the Windian economy, worth 161 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 30,929 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Real power lies not in the debating room but with those who decide what is debated, citizens are frequently searched for illegal weapons, animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs, and retail stores are known for creating their own oddly-similar holidays in the months preceding any major festivity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. A Leaf on the Wind's national animal is the Parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Mirandaism.

A Leaf on the Wind is ranked 58,391st in the world and 1,040th in the Rejected Realms for Most Politically Free, scoring 72.1 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
