Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Democratic Republic of The Batavia is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, rampant corporate plagiarism, and irreverence towards religion. The democratic population of 761 million Batavians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 22.5%.

The very strong Batavian economy, worth 45.9 trillion Euros a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 60,328 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Super Barry Brothers is the most popular video game in the nation, children need to wear helmets and safety harnesses before mounting a carousel horse, crocodile roadkill is smeared across the asphalt of the new Formula One track, and the Navy has outraged the international community by sinking a boatload of refugees to prevent them reaching the shore. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Batavia's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

The Batavia is ranked 34,696th in the world and 53rd in The Union of Democratic States for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 3,312.5 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
