Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Hanging Chad of Butterfly Ballot is a gargantuan, pleasant nation, remarkable for its burgeoning panther population. The hard-nosed population of 21.894 billion Butterfly Ballotians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 20.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Butterfly Ballotian economy, worth 973 trillion moonstones a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 44,452 moonstones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 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 and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Butterfly Ballot's national animal is the panther, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Butterfly Ballot is ranked 48th in Florida and 126,688th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring 4 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
