Bakery Hill

Population4.446 billion


The Bakery of Bakery Hill is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its national health service, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic population of 4.446 billion Bread Rolls are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 34.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Bakery Hillian economy, worth 201 trillion Vouchers 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, broadly diversified black market in Beef-Based Agriculture, Retail, Book Publishing, and Tourism. 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 45,374 Vouchers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, the military is on a massive recruiting drive in advance of an invasion of Brasilistan, meteorologists are instantly recognizable from their luxury cars and jewelry, and Bakery Hill is notorious for its citizens' infidelity. Crime is totally unknown. Bakery Hill's national animal is the Voucher, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bakery Hill is ranked 61,076th in the world and 2nd in The NSG Soviet for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 88.6 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
