“Please Leave Us Alone”
|Category: Corrupt Dictatorship|
Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: The North Pacific
The Empire of Bati Slaples is a very large, orderly nation, notable for its state-planned economy, prohibition of alcohol, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 195 million Bati Slaplesians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 34.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but underdeveloped Bati Slaplesian economy, worth 8.38 trillion Boots 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 slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, and Information Technology. 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 42,979 Boots, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks, dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming, unemployed youngsters trained to kill are being released en masse into society, and the nation's most popular sport is sabotaging foreigners' hopes and dreams. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bati Slaples's national animal is the Living Trees, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
