The Beautiful Socialist Paradise of Big Bay Island is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The First Citizen with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory vegetarianism, ban on automobiles, and smutty television. The compassionate, cynical population of 13.564 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 191 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 14,151 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The words 'private' and 'enterprise' must never appear in the same sentence, the new national mascot has to be wheeled onto the field of play, the government has an "easy come, easy go" policy on youth crime, and the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms. 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.
