Blue Ocean on Beach

The Commonwealth of Blue Ocean on Beach is a colossal, genial nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.08 billion Blue Ocean on Beachians 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 enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Blue Ocean on Beachian economy, worth a remarkable 1,398 trillion Fins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 229,998 Fins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Astronomers are flocking to Blue Ocean on Beach to take advantage of its clear night skies, royalist is the most offensive slur in the Blue Ocean on Beachian language, employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, and nouveau riche farmers diligently take care of their golden calf herds. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blue Ocean on Beach's national animal is the Whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Blue Ocean on Beach is ranked 9,208th in the world and 166th in the West Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 1,398 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
