Owl Archipelago

Population2.444 billion

CapitalNova Évora
LeaderD Eduardo de Terra Nova


The Kingdom of Owl Archipelago is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by D Eduardo de Terra Nova with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working population of 2.444 billion Owlians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nova Évora. The average income tax rate is 71.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Owlian economy, worth 122 trillion escudoes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism. Average income is 50,247 escudoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Inheritance tax has recently been abolished, religious turf wars have caused frustrated police to pray for divine intervention, the OABI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, and fur coats have become the latest fashion trend. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Owl Archipelago's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Owl Archipelago is ranked 61,471st in the world and 77th in Thalassia for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 437.17 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
