Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Dark Designs of Alien Space Bats is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its state-planned economy, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 11.991 billion Alien Space Bats enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The medium-sized, liberal, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, with Defense, Spirituality, and Education also on the agenda, while Welfare isn't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 26.2%.

The very strong batty economy, worth 724 trillion Jonbar Hinges a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Gambling, Automobile Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 60,424 Jonbar Hinges, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 259,128 per year while the poor average 9,018, a ratio of 28.7 to 1.

Bicyclists are banned from major roads, the police force is on a recruitment drive, Alien Space Bats's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, and all recreational drugs are legal. Crime is moderate. Alien Space Bats's national animal is the Deus Ex Machina, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Alien Space Bats is ranked 3rd in Somewhere Out There and 42,566th in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 2 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
