Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Theocracy of Bleechovia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Supreme Commander Michale' with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, prohibition of alcohol, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 13.371 billion Bleechovians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bastian . The average income tax rate is 91.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bleechovian economy, worth a remarkable 1,852 trillion Offerings a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 138,571 Offerings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The tax agency is feared more than serial killers and terrorists, every workday begins with group therapy, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, and wigged-out hunters report playing croquet with the Queen of Hearts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bleechovia's national animal is the Irukandji, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Bleechism.

Bleechovia is ranked 174,686th in the world and 5,318th in Osiris for Highest Drug Use, scoring 8.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
