A Leaf on the Wind

Population4.275 billion

LeaderEphraim Barnes


The Watch how I Soar Nation of A Leaf on the Wind is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Ephraim Barnes with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, digital currency, and avant-garde cinema. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.275 billion BrownCoats are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Serenity. The average income tax rate is 61.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Leaf on the Windian economy, worth 136 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 32,035 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's always rabbit season, 'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song, burial ceremonies have become as routinised as tax forms, and real power lies not in the debating room but with those who decide what is debated. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. A Leaf on the Wind's national animal is the Parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Mirandaism.

A Leaf on the Wind is ranked 8,847th in the world and 209th in the Rejected Realms for Best Weather, with 211 Meters Of Sunlight.
