The Republic of Kuhistani Badakhshan is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The devout population of 525 million Kuhistani Badakhshanis are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Khorugh. The average income tax rate is 70.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Kuhistani Badakhshanian economy, worth 16.4 trillion rubles 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 mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 31,314 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines, war criminals are given full state funerals, children are regularly married to each other to secure alliances between families, and games of cops and robbers typically end in at least one fatal shooting. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kuhistani Badakhshan's national animal is the Marco Polo Sheep, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kuhistani Badakhshan is ranked 103,006th in the world and 3,775th in The North Pacific for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 852.09 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
