The Greatest Bestest Nation

Population6.75 billion


The Borderlands of The Greatest Bestest Nation is a colossal, safe nation, notable for its ban on automobiles and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.75 billion Greatest Bestest Nationians 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 large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 43.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Greatest Bestest Nationian economy, worth 173 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 25,691 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Landless farmers wander forlornly in the government's many national parks, prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned significant others, drug lords often avoid prison time by teaching "chemistry" classes to underprivileged youth, and the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Greatest Bestest Nation's national animal is the Spider, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Greatest Bestest Nation is ranked 65,989th in the world and 196th in The Free Nations Region for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 2,881.8 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
