New Bawkie 151

The Republic of New Bawkie 151 is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its frequent executions, ban on automobiles, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.496 billion New Bawkie 151ians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 20.5%.

The strong New Bawkie 151ian economy, worth 84.7 trillion baht a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 56,597 baht, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

A spate of enforced closures has left 'Government FM' as the nation's only radio station, the government says only criminals harp on about "innocent until proven guilty", child shoplifters spend half their youth behind bars, and it is now illegal for teens to view any sites except Club Kitten and My Little Donkey. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Bawkie 151's national animal is the dove, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

New Bawkie 151 is ranked 56,631st in the world and 449th in Bawkie for Largest Black Market, with 2.03 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
