New Bvergia

Population157 million


The Protectorate of New Bvergia is a very large, socially progressive nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The quiet, industrious population of 157 million New Bvergians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 68.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant New Bvergian economy, worth 1.12 trillion bruns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 7,145 bruns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Bvergia's national animal is the panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Bvergia is ranked 127,723rd in the world and 36th in The Okchi Union for Most Cultured, scoring 64 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
