Location: the Rejected Realms

Regional Influence: Hatchling


The Republic of Bam 23 is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, state-planned economy, and soft-spoken computers. The quiet, industrious population of 681 million Bam 23ians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Spirituality also on the agenda, while International Aid and Welfare receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 37.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Bam 23ian economy, worth 19.8 trillion rupees a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 29,085 rupees, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Only AIs know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile, asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, and Bam 23 recently decided against having a capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bam 23's national animal is the bison, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Bam 23 is ranked 133,690th in the world and 3,437th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 724.44 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
