The Empire of Bend Mai is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Erick I with an even hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 1.465 billion Bend Maians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Siorjo. The average income tax rate is 92.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Bend Maian economy, worth 228 trillion guilders 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 156,117 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, the installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused, kids these days know how to throw a proper punch, and the weather report is the prisoners' favourite programme. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bend Mai's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Elotasni.
