OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Community of Booksmarts is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 2.413 billion Booksmartsians are known throughout the region for their efficiency and work ethic, as well as their general suspicion of leisure.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Social Equality. The average income tax rate is 77%, and even higher for the wealthy. A substantial private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

The government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy', all citizens are solely referenced by their allocated identity number, the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, and the death penalty has been reintroduced. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Booksmarts's national animal is the Book, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Word.

Booksmarts is ranked 73rd in Black Mesa Islands and 103,244th in the world for Stupidest Citizens, scoring 8 on the Average Edu-UNtellignce® Test Score.
