Southern Bellz

The South Pacific Socialist of Southern Bellz is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed population of 19.121 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 752 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 39,329 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 147,091st in the world and 5,649th in the South Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 44.16 Workforce Participation Rate.
