Ten Bagger

Population2.422 billion


The Republic of Ten Bagger is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its smutty television, frequent executions, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.422 billion Ten Baggerians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 20.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Ten Baggerian economy, worth 175 trillion guilders a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Pizza Delivery, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 72,537 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky, the country's population is reported with a margin of error of several billions, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, and gay hospital patients are labelled with a pink triangle to alert staff of their substandard blood. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate. Ten Bagger's national animal is the sheep, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ten Bagger is ranked 104,232nd in the world and 58th in tallis alternate futures for Most Pro-Market, scoring 47 on the Rand Index.
