Geber Badz

Population438 million



The Republic of Geber Badz is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 438 million Geber Badzians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Montclair. The average income tax rate is 55.8%.

The powerhouse Geber Badzian economy, worth 41.3 trillion pesos a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 94,386 pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Genetic research is temporarily tied up in government red tape, passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, drug distribution is tightly controlled by the government, and unemployment rates have skyrocketed as businesses abandon the country in search of cheap labour. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Geber Badz's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Geber Badz is ranked 109,698th in the world and 456th in Europeia for Most Pro-Market, scoring 45.22 on the Rand Index.
