Sleazy Pigeon

Population5.499 billion


The Colony of Sleazy Pigeon is a colossal, orderly nation, notable for its public floggings, strictly enforced bedtime, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.499 billion Sleazy Pigeons are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 39.4%.

The all-consuming Sleazy economy, worth 293 trillion crusts a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 53,438 crusts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky, the newest East Lebatuckese coins have "long live East Lebatuck" on heads and "death to Sleazy Pigeon" on tails, no one is quite sure what many government officials look like, and consumers are free to choose - so long as they choose Eckie-Ecola or Eckie-Cola. Crime is a problem, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Sleazy Pigeon's national animal is the pigeon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Sleazy Pigeon is ranked 1,980th in the world and 1st in Pigeon Axis Force for Most Secular, with 99.08 Atheism Rate.
