The Kingdom of 13BM is a colossal, cultured nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 7.711 billion 13BMians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nautilus. The average income tax rate is 70.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving 13BMian economy, worth 473 trillion gils a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 61,466 gils, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Refugees from other nations are flocking to 13BM's border, politicians are to be found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, the minority inevitably have their addenda vetoed, and the breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in 13BM. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 13BM's national animal is the bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

13BM is ranked 110,618th in the world and 3,395th in Osiris for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.34 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
