Flap Flap Boom 9

Population2.879 billion


The Grand Duchy of Flap Flap Boom 9 is a massive, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape and suspicion of poets.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 20.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 41,972 Mylks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Teachers are dying as they attempt to read 500 word essays without pausing for breath, TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas, it is illegal to make racist remarks in public, and the nation is known abroad for fast food and nothing else.

Flap Flap Boom 9's national animal is the Penguin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.
