Bubba Bean

Population732 million

CapitalTaz City


The United Socialist States of Bubba Bean is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its digital currency, ban on automobiles, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 732 million Bubba Beanians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Taz City. The average income tax rate is 78.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Bubba Beanian economy, worth 27.6 trillion Biscuits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Pizza Delivery, and Tourism. Average income is 37,729 Biscuits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is stuck in permanent election mode as politicians demand constant do-overs, Super Barry Brothers is the most popular video game in the nation, saying "don't do anything that Leader wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, and male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bubba Bean's national animal is the Taz, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bubba Bean is ranked 18,506th in the world and 670th in The East Pacific for Safest, scoring 113.72 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
