The Bureaucratic Territories

Population10.84 billion

CapitalDistrict 1

AnimalMutated Platypus

The Disputed Territories of The Bureaucratic Territories is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Overlord with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.84 billion Measured Men 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 medium-sized, liberal government is dominated by the Department of Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of District 1. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Weighed and Measured economy, worth a remarkable 1,945 trillion Favours a year, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 179,478 Favours, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Criminals are put to death while cuddling their favourite teddy bear, politicians are often seen attending regional history classes at primary schools within their constituencies, economists have been named Invertebrates of the Year, and census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Bureaucratic Territories's national animal is the Mutated Platypus, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Bureaucratic Territories is ranked 4,189th in the world and 249th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 90.91 Years.
