Bagstrom

The People's Republic of Bagstrom is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 248 million Bags are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 69.9%.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Bagstromian economy, worth 9.41 trillion Airs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 37,960 Airs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

An increasingly villainous series of sports coaches are demanding the national mascot's true identity, politicians and casino owners who so much as wander into the same room are arrested on the spot, the strong are acquitted and the weak are trampled in trial by a Human, and Bags believe the only thing that will make you happy is being unhappy with who you are. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bagstrom's national animal is the Human, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bagstrom is ranked 182,383rd in the world and 3rd in Stromboli for Most Politically Free, scoring zero on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
