“Justice, piety, loyalty” Erick I
|Category: Democratic Socialists|
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
Location: The North Pacific
The Empire of Bend Mai is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Erick I with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, compulsory vegetarianism, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 1.945 billion Bend Maians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Siorjo. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.
The frighteningly efficient Bend Maian economy, worth 333 trillion guilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 171,430 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Manual labourers must be willing to have cybernetic limbs to get a job, monochrome green ECO-BM products adorn the supermarket shelves, party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", and hospitals are amongst the best-funded in the region. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bend Mai's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Elotasni.
