Bertram Bernard

Population18.878 billion



The Queen's State of Bertram Bernard is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its absence of drug laws, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-working, democratic population of 18.878 billion Bertram Bernardians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, with Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Westminster. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.5%.

The very strong Bertram Bernardian economy, worth 990 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Pizza Delivery, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 52,477 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 356,780 per year while the poor average 2,819, a ratio of 126 to 1.

Voting is voluntary, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, all tariffs have been abolished, and Bertram Bernard has designated Westminster as its capital city. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Bertram Bernard's national animal is the deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Bertram Bernard is ranked 1,524th in the world and 1st in Kinshasa for Most Stationary, with 3,158.66464512 Days.
