Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of Bothia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Muad'Dib with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, vat-grown people, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 13.631 billion Bothians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Industry, although Education, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Defense and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arrakeen. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Bothian economy, worth a remarkable 8,953 trillion Spice Melanges a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Tourism, Cheese Exports, Retail, and Basket Weaving. Average income is a breathtaking 656,842 Spice Melanges, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

People accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety, the art of conversation has been rediscovered, all tariffs have been abolished, and all recreational drugs are legal. Crime is totally unknown. Bothia's national animal is the Seaworm, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bothia is ranked 50th in the world and 3rd in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 46,500.24 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
