The Empire of Bend Mai is a huge, genial nation, notable for its aversion to nipples, infamous sell-swords, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 420 million Bend Maians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Siorjo. The average income tax rate is 52.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Bend Maian economy, worth 47.6 trillion guilders a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 113,234 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The Bend Mai Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, a government program is underway to revitalize Bend Mai's beaches, and children who write letters to Santa Claus end up in straitjackets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Bend Mai's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
