The Grand Republic of The Bay is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Abigail Grádoine with a fair hand, and remarkable for its lack of airports, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.74 billion Bayians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aigéarinn. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.
The powerhouse Bayian economy, worth 345 trillion Bules 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 126,043 Bules, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the The Bay Blood Tithe, there's never a spare chair in the retirement home, Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, and government buildings are being cleansed of anything that might have racist connotations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Bay's national animal is the Bottlenose Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Celtic Paganism.
