Location: Artificial Solar System

Regional Influence: Nipper


The Republic of Bubblamania is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its deadly medical pandemics, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.67 billion Bubblamanians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 28.5%.

The thriving Bubblamanian economy, worth 242 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Gambling, Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 90,993 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Panels from bankrupt rooftop solar companies are used as props for sci-fi B-movies, ad-blocking has been nationalised, the suicide rate mysteriously skyrockets during census years, and the government terminates employment with extreme prejudice. Crime is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Bubblamania's national animal is the owl, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Bubblamania is ranked 24,612th in the world and 67th in Artificial Solar System for Highest Drug Use, scoring 113.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
