Bad Witch 15

Population376 million


The Grand Duchy of Bad Witch 15 is a huge, pleasant nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-working population of 376 million Bad Witch 15ians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 17.5%.

The strong Bad Witch 15ian economy, worth 18.6 trillion Pesos a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Retail, Furniture Restoration, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 49,409 Pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

A large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, organ donation is compulsory, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, and commuters are denied boarding for attempting to bring packed lunches onto trains. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bad Witch 15's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Bad Witch 15 is ranked 117,111th in the world and 2,062nd in Birb for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 103.63 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
