Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Beautiful Socialist Paradise of Big Bay Island is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The First Citizen with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory vegetarianism, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 14.492 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 588 trillion florins a year, is driven almost 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 40,617 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Artists are pillars of society, sections of the police receive paramilitary training, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, and the police force is rumoured to be made up of evil shadows with no souls. 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 17,461st in the world and 63rd in Yggdrasil for Highest Economic Output, with 588 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
