Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Pirate Ship of Bilge Rat Ronnie is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Bilge Rat Ronnie with an iron fist, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, compulsory military service, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 19.045 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, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Spirituality and Environment not funded at all. 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 5,109 trillion assorted pieceses of 8 a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 268,290 assorted pieceses of 8, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,272,951 per year while the poor average 33,369, a ratio of 38.1 to 1.

Computer users are buried daily in thousands of unsolicited emails, only the wealthy can afford monorail fares, calling out of the blue has become taboo, and the government's religious works are headed by a New Age guru. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. 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 265th in Yggdrasil and 118,246th in the world for Best Weather, with -788 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
