Bagstrom

The People's Republic of Bagstrom is a tiny, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 9 million Bags are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 69.4%.

The fair Bagstromian economy, worth 347 billion Airs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 38,619 Airs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Careless Maxémon Trainers have been the cause of numerous search and rescue operations, many politicians are serving jail time for minor drug offenses, orphanages are closing their doors as the government forces parents to actually raise their children, and would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bagstrom's national animal is the Human.

Bagstrom is ranked 134,992nd in the world and 1st in Stromboli for Most Influential, scoring 23 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
