Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Confederacy of Bakhton is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Jun Jetsu with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.313 billion Bakhs hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 64.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bakhtonian economy, worth 113 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 86,798 bottle caps, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, sex education has become an intricate maze of stick figures and complex metaphors, business leaders commend the government for enacting a emissions reduction strategy that reduces no Bakhtonian emissions at all, and Jun Jetsu's mistress is the belle at many state balls. Crime is totally unknown. Bakhton's national animal is the mouse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bakhton is ranked 8,810th in the world and 74th in Social Liberal Union for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 62.2 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
