“Gobble Gobble Wibble Wobble Do a Noodle Dance” Hyacinth Rutledge
|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: Renegade Islands Alliance
The Burger Town of Dixadoing is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Hyacinth Rutledge with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, otherworldly petting zoo, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 9.968 billion Dixadoingians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Channing. The average income tax rate is 74.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Dixadoingian economy, worth 805 trillion marks a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 80,814 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Whenever pilots have to bail out the government bails out their company, re-education centers are being added to most prisons, throwing a sickie is a serious crime, and the banshee wail foretells skies of death. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dixadoing's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
