The Bureaucratic Territories

Population12.763 billion

CapitalDistrict 1

AnimalMutated Platypus

The Disputed Territories of The Bureaucratic Territories is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Overlord with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.763 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, with Industry, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of District 1. The average income tax rate is 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Weighed and Measured economy, worth a remarkable 2,330 trillion Favours a year, is quite specialized and 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 182,598 Favours, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Board shorts have replaced board rooms, the Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy, history textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students, and praying before a battle is a court-martial offence. 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 143,699th in the world and 6,503rd in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 31.67 on the Rand Index.
