Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Socialist Yuzar Republic of Northern Bavungria is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Peoples Dictator Heduk Lore with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, national health service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 13.268 billion Yuzarians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lanverska. The average income tax rate is 71.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Yuzarian economy, worth 884 trillion Stalikoes a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 66,677 Stalikoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians have literally dirty hands from their extracurricular activities, the "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Yuzarians any less frightened, t-shirts displaying a photo of Peoples Dictator Heduk Lore performing the Full-Monty are selling out, and the nation's interest in space is at an all-time high while interest in saving the planet is at an all-time low. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northern Bavungria's national animal is the Raven, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Thrinian Catholic.

Northern Bavungria is ranked 177,797th in the world and 79th in New Hyperion for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -27.09 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
