Bernieland Republic

Population757 million



The Democratic States of Bernieland Republic is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, soft-spoken computers, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 757 million Bernieland Republicans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Industry, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grāndola. The average income tax rate is 83.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bernieland Republican economy, worth 85.0 trillion Escudos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 112,295 Escudos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hordes of unemployed lumberjacks have resorted to cutting down utility poles to satisfy their cravings, five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars, the nation's black ops are starting to get on people's nerves, and the people elect the Supreme Court justices directly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bernieland Republic's national animal is the Zebra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bernieland Republic is ranked 12,358th in the world and 95th in The Internationale for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,579.02 Tourists Per Hour.
