Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Confederacy of Bakhton is a huge, genial nation, ruled by Jun Jetsu with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 784 million Bakhs hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 53.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Bakhtonian economy, worth 70.1 trillion bottle caps a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 89,375 bottle caps, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm, Jun Jetsu has just been declared ruler of Bakhton in an international press conference, and it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma. Crime is totally unknown. Bakhton's national animal is the mouse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bakhton is ranked 111,007th in the world and 117th in Social Liberal Union for Largest Black Market, with 81.7 billion Standard Monetary Units.
