OverviewFactbookDispatchesPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Republic of Bergonnia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Maximus Aquila with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 12.636 billion Bergonnians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bernside. The average income tax rate is 87.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bergonnian economy, worth a remarkable 1,884 trillion Dollars a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 149,157 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Many friends and relatives of Maximus Aquila have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend, public projects are synonymous with yawn-inducing conformity, and citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bergonnia's national animal is the Bergonnian Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Bergonnia is ranked 16,213th in the world and 5th in New Western Atlantic for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 299.56 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
