Headpat Central

Population4.609 billion

CapitalHeadpat City


The Compassionate Republic of Headpat Central is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, state-planned economy, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.609 billion Headpat Centralians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Headpat City. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Headpat Centralian economy, worth 873 trillion florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 189,445 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, and vote-counting is replacing kitchen patrol as the least glamorous army work. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Headpat Central's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Headpat Central is ranked 152,780th in the world and 6,246th in The East Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -14.28 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
