Butcher Bridge

Population841 million

LeaderCaptain Gangplank


The Armed Republic of Butcher Bridge is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Captain Gangplank with an iron fist, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 841 million Butcher Bridgeans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bilgewater. The average income tax rate is 29.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Butcher Bridgean economy, worth 82.2 trillion Dubloons a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 97,713 Dubloons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Captain Gangplank has been self-declared as the Most Supreme Magnificent Overlord of Everything You Ever Saw, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, hairdressers are among those who have disappeared overnight, and the nation is infamous for its mass graves of discarded robots. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Butcher Bridge's national animal is the Mermaid, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Butcher Bridge is ranked 3,049th in the world and 145th in The North Pacific for Most Secular, with 98.65 Atheism Rate.
