The Woodhouse Sanctum of Bsea-1 is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its daily referendums, state-planned economy, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 17.015 billion Bsea-1ians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 60.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Bsea-1ian economy, worth a remarkable 1,111 trillion $$s a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 65,306 $$s, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One of the nation's leading exports is empty platitudes, the Bsea-1 Mental Asylum Party have recently won seats in parliament, the most popular stadium acts are one-off performances, and citizens are being told that the greatness of a nation's power is the measure of its surrender. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bsea-1's national animal is the Laughing swordfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Bsea-1 is ranked 197,641st in the world and 1st in Bismarck Sea for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 72,254 Standard Monetary Units.
