Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Allied States of Bergenu is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Griffen with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, rampant corporate plagiarism, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 19.564 billion Bergenuans 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bergenu City. The average income tax rate is 90.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Bergenuan economy, worth a remarkable 1,234 trillion bergs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 63,081 bergs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sections of the police receive paramilitary training, libraries are replacing history books and classic novels with technical manuals and trades directories to match the nation's changing demands, school lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time, and student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned Southern Pygmy Pigball fields. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bergenu's national animal is the Southern Pygmy Pig, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Bergenu is ranked 57,828th in the world and 917th in the South Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 646 billion Standard Monetary Units.
