The Land of the Dogs

Population3.497 billion

CapitalDog City


The United States of The Land of the Dogs is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Dago with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.497 billion Land of the Dogsians 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, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Welfare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dog City. The average income tax rate is 76.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Land of the Dogsian economy, worth 340 trillion Dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 97,336 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy', Dago has taken to wearing medal-adorned military uniform in all public appearances, confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle", and business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Land of the Dogs's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

The Land of the Dogs is ranked 20,869th in the world and 1,300th in Lazarus for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 231.75 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
