Beatah Island

Population963 million


The Commonwealth of Beatah Island is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 963 million Beatah Islandians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 68.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Beatah Islandian economy, worth 48.5 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 50,409 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians tend to speak more loudly and slowly these days, bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, the airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, and Leader has just been declared ruler of Beatah Island in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Beatah Island's national animal is the turtle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Beatah Island is ranked 51,314th in the world and 2,800th in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.71 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
