The Schizophrenic states of New Bismuthium is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Hootsman with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, public floggings, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 3.042 billion Vismuttis are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 Asgaard II. The average income tax rate is 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vismuttian economy, worth 618 trillion Chicken 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 amazing 203,244 Chicken wings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, it turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage, the government tries to improve relations with hostile countries by sending gift baskets, and friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns. Crime is totally unknown. New Bismuthium's national animal is the Platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Holy winged blue scaled platypus.

New Bismuthium is ranked 16,973rd in the world and 1st in The Guardians of Asgaard for Longest Average Lifespans, with 90.4 Years.
