The Democratic Republic of Batona is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Leo with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, daily referendums, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.497 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 72.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Batonan economy, worth 147 trillion Batonian Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 98,521 Batonian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, Batonians are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks, people caught mistreating Batona's flag generally wind up in a great deal of pain, and major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day. 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.
