OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Kingdom of 13BM is a colossal, economically powerful nation, notable for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.548 billion 13BMians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, the Environment, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nautilus. The average income tax rate is 62%, and even higher for the wealthy. A small private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Refugees from other nations are flocking to 13BM's border, politicians are to be found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, the minority inevitably have their addenda vetoed, and the breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in 13BM. Crime is totally unknown. 13BM's national animal is the bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the gil.

13BM is ranked 1,947th in Osiris and 81,573rd in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -8 on the Hayek Index.
