Fifteen Bagger

Population1.881 billion


The Republic of Fifteen Bagger is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 1.881 billion Fifteen Baggerians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 38.9%.

The strong Fifteen Baggerian economy, worth 100 trillion marks a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 53,227 marks, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

Elderly prisoners with severe dementia are reminded hourly that they are evil people by helpful nurse-wardens, victims of crime are viewed as less trustworthy than politicians, tax assessment offices double as polling stations, and Leader is too busy listening to praise to get any work done. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fifteen Bagger's national animal is the dolphin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Fifteen Bagger is ranked 49,695th in the world and 62nd in tallis alternate futures for Most Average, scoring 44.39 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
