The Empire of Bend Mai is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Erick I with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, vat-grown people, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 1.938 billion Bend Maians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Siorjo. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.
The frighteningly efficient Bend Maian economy, worth 330 trillion guilders a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 170,605 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
Recorded music can be rented but not bought from record companies, blackface performers claim they are being deliberately ironic, there's no representation without taxation, and business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bend Mai's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Elotasni.
