The Grand Republic of The Bay is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Abigail Grádoine with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.198 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aigéarinn. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.
The all-consuming Bayian economy, worth 401 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 highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 125,611 Bules, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Political detractors refer to Abigail Grádoine as 'that Bigtopian puppet', 'Totally Not Partisan News' is a line item on the government budget, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, and teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank. 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.
