Butterfly Ballot

Population29.9 billion


The Hanging Chad of Butterfly Ballot is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 29.9 billion Butterfly Ballotians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 68.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Butterfly Ballotian economy, worth a remarkable 1,088 trillion moonstones a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Soda Sales, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 36,397 moonstones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 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 51,086th in the world and 10th in Florida for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 66.67 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
