Dot Bot

Population834 million


The Free Land of Dot Bot is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its absence of drug laws, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 834 million Dot Botians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Education. The average income tax rate is 69.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Dot Botian economy, worth 11.2 trillion planets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Trout Farming. Average income is 13,419 planets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Body doubles and armed bodyguards escort witnesses to and from courtrooms, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, mothers are routinely abandoning their children in the name of women's rights, and the nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dot Bot's national animal is the bee, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Dot Bot is ranked 155,547th in the world and 105th in Refugia for Most Primitive, scoring -78.8 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
