The People's Republic of Bertilistan
“THINK OF THE CHILDREN!”

Regional Influence: Duckspeaker
The People's Republic of Bertilistan is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Jeremy Kalo with an even hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, prohibition of alcohol, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, humorless, devout population of 2.267 billion Bertilisians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canklim. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Bertilistanian economy, worth 236 trillion Crowns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 104,410 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Veteran cops reminisce over their heavy armor days, literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts, lawyers spend as much time preparing their make-up as they do their briefs, and politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bertilistan's national animal is the Brown bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Hootism.
