Location: Artificial Solar System
Regional Influence: Minnow
The Republic of Bella Ciao is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service and punitive income tax rates. The democratic population of 13.364 billion Bella Ciaoans 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and International Aid. The average income tax rate is 50.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Bella Ciaoan economy, worth 428 trillion lire a year, is highly specialized and led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 32,084 lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.
The nation has an international reputation for compassion, local executives are seen on the corner with cardboard signs reading "will oppress the masses for food", the government pours millions of lire into rehabilitation programs annually, and hunters have been known to lose limbs while attempting to 'play tag' with their prey. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bella Ciao's national animal is the guerrilla fighter, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
