Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Overly Humble Outcropping of Biblical Importance is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Outlaw Josey Wales with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, complete lack of prisons, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 14.026 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, with Law & Order, Defense, and Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Administration receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of 4th Floor South. The average income tax rate is 75.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Biblical Importancean economy, worth 652 trillion Half-Measures a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 46,510 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.

Biblical Importance is ranked 312th in 10000 Islands and 25,029th in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 59 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
