|Leader||the Federal Executive Council|
The Socialist Federation of New Bazlantis is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Federal Executive Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 11.116 billion Bazlantians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bazlantia. The average income tax rate is 77.1%.
The very strong New Bazlantisian economy, worth 528 trillion bazlars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 47,554 bazlars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.
Eight year-olds with lemonade stands have been known to be locked up on charges of embezzlement, wealthy students ride to school past mendicant dropouts, televangelists flaunt their expensive cars when they attend charity events, and corporations cut costs by taking away safety-features on their products. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Bazlantis's national animal is the Bazlantian Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
