The Owls Kitchen Host of Owlograd is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Chef Owl with a fair hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 850 million Owlogradians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Owls Kitchen. The average income tax rate is 80.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Owlogradian economy, worth 69.7 trillion Owls Kitchen Recipes a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 81,957 Owls Kitchen Recipes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians who misplace decimal points on expense reports are fired for gross incompetence, female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast, Chef Owl's new office is 6 by 8 feet with steel walls and a barred door, and political cartoons depicting Chef Owl's face on an Owl's buttocks are selling like hotcakes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Owlograd's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Owlograd is ranked 14,524th in the world and 212th in Europe for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 8,910.38 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
