Population7.33 billion


The Republic of Bandorion is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.33 billion Bandorionians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 76.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bandorionian economy, worth 742 trillion Miriels a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 101,347 Miriels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, and stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bandorion's national animal is the Capybara, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bandorion is ranked 12,854th in the world and 314th in the South Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 81.43 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
