Kate Bishop

Population249 million


The Republic of Kate Bishop is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 249 million Kate Bishopians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Healthcare, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.0%.

The very strong Kate Bishopian economy, worth 19.3 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 77,466 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 9.9 times as much as the poorest.

Euthanasia is illegal, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, meat-eating is frowned upon, and organ donation is compulsory. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Kate Bishop's national animal is the panther, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Kate Bishop is ranked 22,146th in the world and 1st in The Agents of SHIELD for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 5,370.75 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
