The Greatest Bestest Nation

Population5.173 billion


The Borderlands of The Greatest Bestest Nation is a colossal, socially progressive nation, notable for its ban on automobiles and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 5.173 billion Greatest Bestest Nationians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 29.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Greatest Bestest Nationian economy, worth 166 trillion Dollars a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 32,161 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Spider is one of the most popular forenames in The Greatest Bestest Nation, cars have been banned, the government is engaging in an agricultural trade war with Maxtopia, and the phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Greatest Bestest Nation's national animal is the Spider, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Greatest Bestest Nation is ranked 105,779th in the world and 207th in The Free Nations Region for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 55.17 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
