Location: The Region That Has No Big Banks

Regional Influence: Minnow


The Federal Republic of Batatlandia is a very large, safe nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and digital currency. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 151 million Batatlandians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 12.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Batatlandian economy, worth 11.7 trillion Batatas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 77,731 Batatas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Retail boutiques encourage citizens to honor their military veterans by purchasing flag-patterned underwear, international collectors know that a grease-stain on a work of art probably means it's passed through Batatlandia, every citizen sounds like a television news anchor, and court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Batatlandia's national animal is the Foca, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Batatlandia is ranked 54,609th in the world and 70th in The Region That Has No Big Banks for Smartest Citizens, with 39.18 quips per hour.
