New Bednardia

Population1.109 billion



The Rogue Nation of New Bednardia is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its frequent executions, unlimited-speed roads, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.109 billion New Bednardians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anti-Cephas. The average income tax rate is 56.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong New Bednardian economy, worth 102 trillion Bedrocks a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Cheese Exports, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 92,786 Bedrocks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail, cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, Leader's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, and judicial robes are the country's hottest fashion trend. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Bednardia's national animal is the human, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

New Bednardia is ranked 139,394th in the world and 5,040th in the Rejected Realms for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 15.15 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
