Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Community of Booksmarts is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The democratic population of 3.472 billion Booksmartsians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Booksmarts City. The average income tax rate is 87.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Booksmartsian economy, worth 327 trillion Words a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 94,299 Words, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Warfare increasingly resembles a video game, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, a new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, and the only places to see Books now are at local zoos. 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 93rd in Black Mesa Islands and 138,022nd in the world for Fattest Citizens, scoring -305.36 on the Transpolysaturated Intake Scale.
