The Bereans

Population1.943 billion


The Community of The Bereans is a massive, safe nation, notable for its state-planned economy, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.943 billion Bereans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 80.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Berean economy, worth 47.2 trillion Mites a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 24,285 Mites, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government frequently panders to parents with boutique tax credits, rubber stamp emojis are the new craze, arthritic surgeons with tremulous fingers reassure patients that they are in safe hands, and the state believes that children are what you make of them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Bereans's national animal is the Locust, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Bereans is ranked 159,379th in the world and 6,251st in the South Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 18,828.67 Standard Monetary Units.
