Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Confederacy of Bakhton is a very large, safe nation, notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 179 million Bakhs hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 60.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Bakhtonian economy, worth 10.8 trillion bottle caps 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 dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Tourism, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 60,327 bottle caps, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All new "spies" are fifteen-year-old acne-ridden kids on computers, doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, the government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association, and the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent. Crime is totally unknown. Bakhton's national animal is the mouse.

Bakhton is ranked 107,100th in the world and 245th in Social Liberal Union for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring zero on the Clooney Contribution Index.
