Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Hanging Chad of Butterfly Ballot is a gargantuan, pleasant nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed population of 21.042 billion Butterfly Ballotians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 15.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Butterfly Ballotian economy, worth 911 trillion moonstones a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 43,326 moonstones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Voting is compulsory and citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked. Crime is well under control, thanks to a well-funded police force. Butterfly Ballot's national animal is the panther, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Butterfly Ballot is ranked 49th in Florida and 92,756th in the world for Best Weather, with -7 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
