Capn Besmarestz

Population1.917 billion


The Republic of Capn Besmarestz is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.917 billion Besmarestzians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.7%.

The very strong Capn Besmarestzian economy, worth 142 trillion pounds a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Automobile Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 74,172 pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 219,806 per year while the poor average 19,650, a ratio of 11.2 to 1.

Young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, military units are often seen arguing over which one is truly favored by the gods, the nation's reinforced coffee tables are constructed to survive an atomic blast, and trying to toast marshmallows in an electric fireplace just isn't the same. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Capn Besmarestz's national animal is the bison.

Capn Besmarestz is ranked 14,431st in the world and 1st in The Strait of Magellan for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 5,361.31 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
