Blue Basicland

The Democratic Republic of Blue Basicland is a small, safe nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The democratic population of 20 million Blue Basiclandians 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, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 47.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The fair Blue Basiclandian economy, worth 595 billion cookies a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 29,759 cookies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card, hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms, crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, and signs saying "No Poor People or Weirdoes" are common outside shops and cafés. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blue Basicland's national animal is the cookie bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Blue Basicland is ranked 198,353rd in the world and 396th in The Free Nations Region for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -5.48 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
