“Justice, Piety, Loyalty” William Never
|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Regional Influence: Apprentice
Location: United Nations of Earthlings
The Protectorate of Beyo is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by William Never with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-working, democratic population of 1.327 billion Beyoans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The tiny government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Administration, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mangriang City. The average income tax rate is 8.3%.
The strong Beyoan economy, worth 90.2 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Information Technology. Average income is 67,943 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.
Unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves, the Gallery of Instasnap is the most popular museum in the country, the fire protection service is wholly government-funded, and babies are a small but significant export. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. Beyo's national animal is the sheep, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Catholic.
