Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Community of Booksmarts is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its parental licensing program, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.887 billion Booksmartsians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Booksmarts City. The average income tax rate is 88.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Booksmartsian economy, worth 377 trillion Words a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 97,026 Words, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tax assessment offices double as polling stations, judges are all-powerful, drug distribution is tightly controlled by the government, and the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded 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.

Booksmarts is ranked 20th in Black Mesa Islands and 14,144th in the world for Lowest Crime Rates, scoring 147.472 on the Relative Freedom From Crime Index.
