The Democratic Republic of Batona is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Leo with an even hand, and renowned for its aversion to nipples, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working population of 2.43 billion Batonians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 78.4%.
The frighteningly efficient Batonan economy, worth 277 trillion Batonian Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 114,309 Batonian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.
Disadvantaged youths often commit felonies to enhance their educational prospects, 50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, and grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Batona's national animal is the Eastern Bluebird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
