Bemolian Lands

Population1.754 billion


CurrencyBemolian Peso

The Fishmen-Looking Town of Bemolian Lands is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its parental licensing program, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.754 billion Bemolians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wenisláo. The average income tax rate is 74.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Bemolian economy, worth 165 trillion Bemolian Pesos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is 94,282 Bemolian Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

At least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Leader's wardrobe, citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature', city budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty, and a bureaucratic fight over BIA cafeteria food expenditures has caused the temporary suspension of all agency counterintelligence operations. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bemolian Lands's national animal is the Anhinga, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bemolian Lands is ranked 237,275th in the world and 3,625th in the Pacific for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -6.16 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
