Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Beautiful Socialist Paradise of Big Bay Island is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by The First Citizen with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, ban on automobiles, and smutty television. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 13.043 billion Big Bay Islanders are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Island City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The large but stagnant Big Bay Islandic economy, worth 183 trillion florins a year, is driven entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 14,047 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes, the nation's Medal of Honour can be found as a free toy in breakfast cereal, Big Bay Island has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, and the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Big Bay Island's national animal is the otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is a major religion.

Big Bay Island is ranked 211th in Yggdrasil and 48,507th in the world for Happiest Citizens, scoring 10 on the Relative Cheerfulness Rating.
