Bend Mai

Population459 million



The Empire of Bend Mai is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, vat-grown people, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 459 million Bend Maians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Siorjo. The average income tax rate is 62.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bend Maian economy, worth 51.3 trillion guilders a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 111,760 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, convicts released after being found "wrongfully imprisoned" are surprisingly chill about the whole thing, whole-wheat loaves can only be ordered on the dark web, and dinner parties often end in politically charged fist fights. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Bend Mai's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Bend Mai is ranked 176,398th in the world and 7,678th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 7.66 Obesity Rate.
