Butterfly Ballot

Population26.616 billion


The Hanging Chad of Butterfly Ballot is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 26.616 billion Butterfly Ballotians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Healthcare, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 55.3%.

The strong Butterfly Ballotian economy, worth a remarkable 1,070 trillion moonstones a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Soda Sales, and Retail. Average income is 40,215 moonstones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Voting is compulsory and citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Butterfly Ballot's national animal is the panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Butterfly Ballot is ranked 51,551st in the world and 10th in Florida for Smartest Citizens, with 36.62 Quips Per Hour.
