The Batavia

Population1.822 billion


The Democratic Republic of The Batavia is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The democratic population of 1.822 billion 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 109 trillion Euros a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. 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 90,346th in the world and 164th in The Union of Democratic States for Most Cultured, scoring 65 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
