The Bay Systip

Population352 million


The Republic of The Bay Systip is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 352 million Bay Systipians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 49.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Bay Systipian economy, worth 16.4 trillion florins a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Pizza Delivery, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 46,651 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, local executives are seen on the corner with cardboard signs reading "will oppress the masses for food", rice shortages have risen after paddy fields were drained to combat malaria, and printing out government documents requires the approval of at least three admins. Crime is totally unknown. The Bay Systip's national animal is the squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Bay Systip is ranked 90,681st in the world and 77th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 1,214.6 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
