“Sparrows are good”

Regional Influence: Sprat
Location: 10000 Islands
|Leader||High Chief Piparekiraso|
The Community of Kierekiko is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by High Chief Piparekiraso with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, enforced nudity, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 5.561 billion Kierekikoans 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sikiero. The average income tax rate is 79.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Kierekikoan economy, worth 370 trillion chirps a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 66,659 chirps, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Old spellbooks are only useful as door-stops or toilet roll substitute, unprotected royals have replaced their corgis with rottweilers, the minority inevitably have their addenda vetoed, and it can be a real jungle in a modern courtroom. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kierekiko's national animal is the sparrow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
