Ten Bagger

Population997 million


The Republic of Ten Bagger is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed population of 997 million Ten Baggerians 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 Administration, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 23.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Ten Baggerian economy, worth 48.1 trillion guilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Pizza Delivery, Cheese Exports, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 48,250 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Skateparks can be found in every city, anything is permissible when wearing latex gloves, conspiracy theorists allege that the government is spying on them through their carbon monoxide detectors, and curtailed social programs have left many citizens bereft of any safety net. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ten Bagger's national animal is the sheep, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ten Bagger is ranked 136,767th in the world and 681st in Artificial Solar System for Highest Drug Use, scoring 31 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
