Bigelow Chatham

Population18.481 billion


The Queen's State of Bigelow Chatham is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its absence of drug laws, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 18.481 billion Bigelow Chathamians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.9%.

The very strong Bigelow Chathamian economy, worth 720 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Average income is 38,962 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 264,899 per year while the poor average 2,093, a ratio of 126 to 1.

Voting is voluntary. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Bigelow Chatham's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bigelow Chatham is ranked 170,027th in the world and 7th in Maputo for Most Developed, scoring 50.57 on the Human Development Index.
