The Republic of Baiah Haille
“Please delete this nation”
|Category: Liberal Democratic Socialists|
Location: the Rejected Realms
Regional Influence: Nipper
The Republic of Baiah Haille is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic, devout population of 253 million Baiah Hailleans 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 large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 48.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but underdeveloped Baiah Haillean economy, worth 8.72 trillion guilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 34,460 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, the tenet of free speech is held dear, and terrified tympanists are finding themselves on the front lines armed only with kettledrums. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Baiah Haille's national animal is the swan.
