The Basketcased Economy

Population1.681 billion

Leaderthe average poor man

Currency100 thousand bucks

The Bruhface to rich idiots of The Basketcased Economy is a massive, genial nation, ruled by the average poor man with a fair hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.681 billion trash bins full of worthless bucks love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of money. The average income tax rate is 71.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant horribly poor economy, worth 16.5 trillion 100 thousand bucks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Pizza Delivery, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 9,837 100 thousand bucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's considered a civil right to be allowed to neglect and mistreat your own children, a blood-red mark on the doorframe means a building must be passed over for destruction, The average poor man has just been declared ruler of The Basketcased Economy in an international press conference, and poorism has been named as The Basketcased Economy's national religion. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Basketcased Economy's national animal is the giraffe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is poorism.

The Basketcased Economy is ranked 185,451st in the world and 1,094th in 10000 Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 125.28 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
