The Conservationists and Tree Huggers

Population166 million

AnimalDodo Bird

The Protectorate of The Conservationists and Tree Huggers is a very large, orderly nation, notable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 166 million Conservationists and Tree Huggersians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 70.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Conservationists and Tree Huggersian economy, worth 3.09 trillion Leaveses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining. Average income is 18,636 Leaveses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The book "Zen and the Art of Dog Maintenance" is inexplicably a worldwide success, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle, and the government is eagerly awaiting a multi-million Leaves payment from a deposed Smalltopian monarch. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Conservationists and Tree Huggers's national animal is the Dodo Bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Conservationists and Tree Huggers is ranked 181,414th in the world and 7th in Jurassic World 2015 for Highest Drug Use, scoring 37.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
