Happy Totoro

Population5.187 billion


The Republic of Happy Totoro is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 5.187 billion Happy Totoroans 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 enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 67.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Happy Totoroan economy, worth 154 trillion yen a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 29,763 yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Education is transforming people into first-rate snobs, boats straying just metres away from the shore will raise the ire of the Coast Guard, the slowest students feel vaguely targeted by their Mendelian Inheritance coursework, and most voters only see their chosen representative visit once every election cycle. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Happy Totoro's national animal is the elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Happy Totoro is ranked 142,466th in the world and 5,982nd in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 9.4 Obesity Rate.
