Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Cruises of Bilge Rat Ronnie is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Bilge Rat Ronnie with an iron fist, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, enslaved workforce, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 21.987 billion Bilge Rats enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bandanaland. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Bilge Rattish economy, worth a remarkable 6,334 trillion assorted pieceses of 8 a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 288,086 assorted pieceses of 8, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,529,599 per year while the poor average 28,665, a ratio of 53.4 to 1.

Speaking out against the government is punishable by flogging, Bandanaland has become the number one destination for urban exploration in Canada, violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, and hammering a nail into a wall is an effective death sentence. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Bilge Rat Ronnie's national animal is the Mangy Scurvy Bilge Rat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Jack Sparrow Worship.

Bilge Rat Ronnie is ranked 496th in the world and 1st in Canada for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 481.42 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
