The People's Republic of Bangleshanks is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its lack of airports, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 230 million Bangleshanksers are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 69.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Bangleshankski economy, worth 6.53 trillion bits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 28,379 bits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly, the government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region, the government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly, and people take government jobs for the frequent flier miles. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bangleshanks's national animal is the goose, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Bangleshanks is ranked 126,738th in the world and 39th in The Region That Has No Big Banks for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 11.53 on the Hayek Index.
