Billy Idols

Population305 million


The Dictatorship of Billy Idols is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 305 million Billy Idolsians 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 67.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Billy Idolsian economy, worth 8.41 trillion marks 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 Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 27,583 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Billy Idolsians have replaced bears in a popular idiom, excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, and RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Billy Idols's national animal is the panther, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Billy Idols is ranked 149,612th in the world and 7,411th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 15 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
