The Enlightened Republic of Bad Omen is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Coco Jambo with a fair hand, and renowned for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 23.427 billion Bad Omenians 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 large, liberal, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Social Policy is also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Azweiz. The average income tax rate is 71.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Bad Omenian economy, worth a remarkable 2,473 trillion escudoes a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 105,598 escudoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Punitive tariffs protect local industry, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, and scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Bad Omen's national animal is the Snow Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
