Bal du moulin de la Galette

Population1.719 billion


The Republic of Bal du moulin de la Galette is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-working, cynical population of 1.719 billion Bal du moulin de la Galetteans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Administration, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 36.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Bal du moulin de la Galettean economy, worth 97.3 trillion guilders a year, is led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 56,590 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Judges are rumored to find in favor of whoever bribes them the most, promising seven years of bad luck leads to seven years of community service, denied drugs and entertainment the nation's youth are taking to petty crime to alleviate their boredom, and the nation's armed forces are recruiting thousands to help colonise Brasilistan. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Bal du moulin de la Galette's national animal is the wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Bal du moulin de la Galette is ranked 202,377th in the world and 597th in NationStates Museum of Art for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 429.04 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
