Great Bumland

Population868 million

CapitalGreat Bumland City


The Kingdom of Great Bumland is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 868 million Great Bumlandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Great Bumland City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 23.5%.

The strong Great Bumlandian economy, worth 62.0 trillion Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 71,429 Pounds, with the richest citizens earning 7.4 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's armed forces are recruiting thousands to help colonise Brasilistan, it's a hard-knock life for the orphans doing factory work for a pittance, Leader has been known to threaten dissenting citizens with a machine gun at press conferences, and the WhoTube comments section has gone strangely quiet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Great Bumland's national animal is the Corgi.

Great Bumland is ranked 91,762nd in the world and 2,609th in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 248 billion Standard Monetary Units.
