Birthday Cake Herby

The Queendom of Birthday Cake Herby is a colossal, socially progressive nation, renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, pith helmet sales, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate population of 9.052 billion Birthday Cake Herbys 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 65.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Birthday Caked economy, worth 784 trillion frosted gas pedals a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 86,687 frosted gas pedals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Veteran cops reminisce over their heavy armor days, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, the government's official stance on religion is that it is so very silly, and multiple births are a cause of celebration for tax collectors. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Birthday Cake Herby's national animal is the edible flat tire, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Birthday Cake Herby is ranked 35,571st in the world and 2nd in Lilongwe for Lowest Crime Rates, with 75.34 law-abiding acts per hour.
