The Overly Humble Outcropping of Biblical Importance is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Outlaw Josey Wales with an even hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, strictly enforced bedtime, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 13.453 billion Biblical Importanceans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — prioritizes Environment, although Law & Order, Defense, and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy and Administration are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of 4th Floor South. The average income tax rate is 76.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Biblical Importancean economy, worth 600 trillion Half-Measures a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 44,619 Half-Measures, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, immigrant herding has become a national pastime, soldiers are equipped with multi-million Half-Measure battlesuits, and senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Biblical Importance's national animal is the Lady Bug, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Fortunecookieism.
