|Category: Left-wing Utopia|
Location: the South Pacific
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Democratic States of Bichedder is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 205 million Bichedderians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 70.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but underdeveloped Bichedderian economy, worth 8.47 trillion Bichedders a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 41,323 Bichedders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory, police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, the nation's peacekeeping efforts usually comes with a healthy dose of pillaging, and body doubles and armed bodyguards escort witnesses to and from courtrooms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bichedder's national animal is the Doggies, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
