Bugle

The Republic of Bugle is a small, genial nation, notable for its ban on automobiles, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 29 million Bugleans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Spirituality, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 52.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The struggling Buglean economy, worth 532 billion lalas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 18,354 lalas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Builders across Bugle are blocked up with orders for new public loos, the WhoTube comments section has gone strangely quiet, it's best not to ask what goes into Bugle City Fried Chicken's secret blend of herbs and spices, and pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bugle's national animal is the phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Bugle is ranked 191,892nd in the world and 6,221st in the West Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -5.1 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
