Bernieland Republic

Population318 million



The Democratic States of Bernieland Republic is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic population of 318 million Bernieland Republicans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grāndola. The average income tax rate is 74.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Bernieland Republican economy, worth 31.2 trillion Escudos 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 Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 98,009 Escudos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Grāndola Times is sold out, country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized, it is technically inaccurate to call the dead 'worm food', and people accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bernieland Republic's national animal is the Zebra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bernieland Republic is ranked 22,390th in the world and 152nd in The Internationale for Lowest Crime Rates, with 78.7 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
