The Empire of Bend Mai is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Erick I with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, prohibition of alcohol, and smutty television. The compassionate population of 2.124 billion Bend Maians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Siorjo. The average income tax rate is 96.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Bend Maian economy, worth 384 trillion guilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 180,922 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year, marijuana is legal in the privacy of your own home, the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Bend Mai after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, and the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Siorjo. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bend Mai's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Elotasni.

Bend Mai is ranked 235,312th in the world and 9,537th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 3.91 Obesity Rate.
