New Bawkie 62

The Republic of New Bawkie 62 is a very large, orderly nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and public floggings. The cynical population of 189 million New Bawkie 62ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 28.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The New Bawkie 62ian economy, worth 7.60 trillion rubles a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 40,235 rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Incarcerated crime lords manage their empires from massage tables, kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents, engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?", and the Forestry Department has decided you really can't fight fire with fire. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Bawkie 62's national animal is the panther, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

New Bawkie 62 is ranked 67,533rd in the world and 164th in Bawkie for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 2,335.57 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
