Southern Bellz

Population20.232 billion

The South Pacific Socialist of Southern Bellz is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 20.232 billion Southern Bellzians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Welfare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of BEAR CITY. The average income tax rate is 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Southern Bellzian economy, worth 797 trillion southern bells a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 39,425 southern bells, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Appendix transplant figures have recently doubled, eight year-olds with lemonade stands have been known to be locked up on charges of embezzlement, BEARISM has been named as Southern Bellz's national religion, and naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Southern Bellz's national animal is the BEAR, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is BEARISM.

Southern Bellz is ranked 140,477th in the world and 4,531st in the South Pacific for Most Secular, with 17.11 Atheism Rate.
