Baarle Hertog

Population8.933 billion

The Republic of Baarle Hertog is a colossal, pleasant nation, remarkable for its spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-working, democratic population of 8.933 billion Baarle Hertogians enjoy frequent elections, which are uniformly corrupted by big-spending corporations buying politicians who best suit their interests.

The relatively small, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.0%.

The strong Baarle Hertogian economy, worth 431 trillion franks a year, is led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Retail, and Tourism. Average income is 48,304 franks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 281,987 per year while the poor average 3,893, a ratio of 72.4 to 1.

Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Baarle Hertog's national animal is the Koko Flanel.

Baarle Hertog is ranked 67,261st in the world and 56th in Nederland for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 1,845.8 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
