Bayfront International Territory

Population2.853 billion

LeaderParker Johnson


The United Provinces of Bayfront International Territory is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Parker Johnson with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, ban on automobiles, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.853 billion Bayfrontites enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Luchtstad. The average income tax rate is 92.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bayfrontite economy, worth 375 trillion Baybits a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 131,445 Baybits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The running costs of homeless shelters are so high that it would be cheaper to buy houses for the homeless, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, eminent domain has been abolished, and scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bayfront International Territory's national animal is the Firecrest, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bayfront International Territory is ranked 8,764th in the world and 1st in Interbellum RP for Lowest Crime Rates, with 103.65 law-abiding acts per hour.
