New Bawkie 63

The Republic of New Bawkie 63 is a very large, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, avowedly heterosexual populace, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 171 million New Bawkie 63ians 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 relatively small, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.8%.

The very strong New Bawkie 63ian economy, worth 10.2 trillion bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. Average income is 59,406 bitcoins, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

Historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, soldiers have swapped their uniforms for prisonwear, tourists often cite 'hiding money in an off-shore banking account' as their main reason to visit the nation, and artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings. Crime is moderate. New Bawkie 63's national animal is the dolphin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

New Bawkie 63 is ranked 175,598th in the world and 263rd in Bawkie for Lowest Crime Rates, with 53.62 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
