Dr Owl

Population826 million


The Holy Empire of Dr Owl is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 826 million Dr Owlians 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 Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 15.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Dr Owlian economy, worth 38.7 trillion Hoots a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 46,872 Hoots, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dr Owl's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Dr Owl is ranked 135,371st in the world and 1st in Owl for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -4.38 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.

Largest Trout Fishing Sector: 9,275th
