The Republic of Baa Nemi Gon is a tiny, safe nation, notable for its state-planned economy and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 18 million Baa Nemi Gonians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 43.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The fair Baa Nemi Gonian economy, worth 623 billion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Tourism, Furniture Restoration, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 34,632 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Baa Nemi Gon's national animal is the porpoise.
