Bam 10

Population486 million


The Republic of Bam 10 is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, devout population of 486 million Bam 10ians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Spirituality are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 40.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Bam 10ian economy, worth 19.5 trillion rupees a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 40,083 rupees, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back, the experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Wolf Dung" has been declared a national treasure, women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms, and teachers regularly paddle unruly students. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bam 10's national animal is the wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Bam 10 is ranked 47,946th in the world and 1,897th in the Rejected Realms for Most Patriotic, with 20.13 flags saluted per person per day.
