New Bismuthium

The Holy Black Land of New Bismuthium is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Techno Judas with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, anti-smoking policies, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 10.785 billion Vismuttis enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chryst. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Vismuttian economy, worth a remarkable 2,117 trillion Wings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 196,341 Wings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Forgetting to pay your annual passport bill is a leading cause of deportations, children's TV shows are having a gay old time, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, and giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls. Crime is totally unknown. New Bismuthium's national animal is the Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Holy techno platypus.

New Bismuthium is ranked 9,132nd in the world and 473rd in The North Pacific for Best Weather, with 240 meters of sunlight.
