The Commonwealth of Treehound is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its punitive income tax rates and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 948 million Treehoundians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chestnutsia. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient Treehoundian economy, worth 27.7 trillion Hounds a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 29,243 Hounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", hordes of unemployed lumberjacks have resorted to cutting down utility poles to satisfy their cravings, and white strait-jackets are the new orange jumpsuits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Treehound's national animal is the Dachshund, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
