|Animal||Canadian flying bird|
The Commonwealth of BETTER CANADA is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Jagmeet Singh with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.514 billion Canadians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ottawa. The average income tax rate is 82.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient BETTER CANADAian economy, worth 121 trillion Canadian dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 80,576 Canadian dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.
The government is more interested in identifying problems than fixing them, monocled merchants with funny accents are applying for BETTER CANADAian citizenship in droves, there's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services, and Canadian flying bird sanctuaries have been taken over by hydraulic fracturing sites. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. BETTER CANADA's national animal is the Canadian flying bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Sikhism.
