The Republic of South Baba
“Proud and Free”
|Category: Liberal Democratic Socialists|
Location: The North Pacific
Regional Influence: Sprat
The Republic of South Baba is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 336 million South Babans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bocaugh. The average income tax rate is 74.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The South Baban economy, worth 14.9 trillion farthings a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 44,347 farthings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, the installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused, dictionary sales have hit an all-time high, and only adults may purchase violent video games. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Baba's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
