The Socialist Federation of New Bazlantis is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Federal Executive Council with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 6.998 billion Bazlantians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bazlantia. The average income tax rate is 55%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
Teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, disaster victims are viewed with disdain, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, and eight year-olds with lemonade stands have been known to be locked up on charges of embezzlement. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is moderate, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. New Bazlantis's national animal is the Bazlantian Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the bazlar.
