Population33.655 billion


The Republic of Curlyhoward is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its daily referendums, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 33.655 billion Curlyhowardians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Welfare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 35.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Curlyhowardian economy, worth a remarkable 1,428 trillion Larries a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 42,447 Larries, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Leader's bedroom, the government has completely eliminated all childcare programs, libraries are bulldozed to make way for internet cafés, and men avoid even so much as looking at female colleagues. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Curlyhoward's national animal is the Moe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Curlyhoward is ranked 29,682nd in the world and 1,075th in the South Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 76.1 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
