Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Republic of Blau Stein is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Ron Paul with a fair hand, and notable for its public floggings, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 12.228 billion Blau Steinians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. Income tax is unheard of.

The all-consuming Blau Steinian economy, worth a remarkable 1,946 trillion Gold Dollars a year, is driven entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 159,183 Gold Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 8.6 times as much as the poorest.

One-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, birth rates have hit an all-time low, the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, and daisy chain gangs plant flowers and pick up litter. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Blau Stein's national animal is the sea otter, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Blau Stein is ranked 49th in Capitalist Paradise and 2,819th in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring 34 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
