The Orcs tore my hair of Bald Codger is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its state-planned economy and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.6 billion Bald Codgerians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 58.7%.
The Bald Codgerian economy, worth 227 trillion Hairs 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, highly specialized black market in Cheese Exports, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Automobile Manufacturing, and Retail. 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 40,651 Hairs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.
Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bald Codger's national animal is the Lice, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
