Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Community of Booksmarts is a massive, safe nation, notable for its prohibition of alcohol, digital currency, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic population of 2.97 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 270 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 reasonably common. Average income is 91,010 Words, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Mandatory electronic currency is a boon for credit card companies and government surveillance, invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie, naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure, and anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper.
