The Land of the Dogs

Population5.049 billion

CapitalDog City


The United States of The Land of the Dogs is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Dago with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 5.049 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, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Administration, and Welfare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dog City. The average income tax rate is 78.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Land of the Dogsian economy, worth 494 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 98,020 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Grinder at Fat Sal's Deli and Recycling Center is a national institution, builders across The Land of the Dogs are blocked up with orders for new public loos, a degree in Dago Science with a Minor in Awesomeology starts many political careers, and the request to "give us our daily bread" can only be fulfilled six days out of seven. 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 6,260th in the world and 351st in Lazarus for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.85 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
