The Republic of Bichgetterland is a small, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape and absence of drug laws. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 20 million Bichgetterlandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The tiny, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 7.1%.
The Bichgetterlandian economy, worth 1.14 trillion boyoes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 56,988 boyoes, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.
Organ donation is compulsory and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Bichgetterland's national animal is the ogre, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.
