Bat Pony Nation

Population8.832 billion


The Empire of Bat Pony Nation is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its soft-spoken computers, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 8.832 billion bat ponies 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 29.9%.

The Equestrian economy, worth 476 trillion shillings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 53,959 shillings, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.

Pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, Leader has just been declared ruler of Bat Pony Nation in an international press conference, and only AI know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bat Pony Nation's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Bat Pony Nation is ranked 100,460th in the world and 23rd in The Trunk of a Pontiac Tempest for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 29.93 Effective Tax Rate.
