Bam 5

Population660 million

The Republic of Bam 5 is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ban on automobiles, and compulsory military service. The quiet, industrious population of 660 million Bam 5ians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 23.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Bam 5ian economy, worth 34.2 trillion marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 51,783 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

On-call doctors who check their pagers during movies are banned from cinemas for life, tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, the military invades any neighboring nation with the gall to criticize its policies, and 50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Bam 5's national animal is the tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Bam 5 is ranked 206,022nd in the world and 8,931st in Suspicious for Most Stationary, with 17.68011368472 days.
