Regional Influence: Shoeshiner


The Republic of Bavant is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by SeRHi0 with an iron fist, and renowned for its aversion to nipples, free-roaming dinosaurs, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.546 billion Bavantians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Кельзбург. The average income tax rate is 71.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Bavantian economy, worth 219 trillion Bents 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 large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. 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 an impressive 141,822 Bents, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

SeRHi0's iHouse is so intelligent that it manages its own social media accounts, girls in elementary school classes gaze longingly at boys playing tag, the hills are alive with the sound of ringtones, and mathematicians are gathering an infinite number of monkeys and typewriters to see if they can recreate the works of Max Barry. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bavant's national animal is the monkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Христианство.

Bavant is ranked 3,924th in the world and 290th in Europe for Most Influential, scoring 25,683 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
