Bedetopian Capture Team 12

The Dictatorship of Bedetopian Capture Team 12 is a colossal, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 6.583 billion Blue Soldiers 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 large, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 44.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Bedetopian economy, worth 62.0 trillion Bedollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Tourism, Cheese Exports, Soda Sales, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 9,423 Bedollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bedetopian Capture Team 12's national animal is the Tentacled Lion of Venus.

Bedetopian Capture Team 12 is ranked 158,446th in the world and 1st in Psychotic Dictatorhip for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 340.14 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
