The Republic of Birgalon is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.095 billion Birgalonians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 75.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Birgalonian economy, worth 146 trillion lire a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 133,359 lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.
The government is reining in public spending, being Leader has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs, 100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past, and dozens of viewers go online to hear whether a comma has been added to Clause 5 in Subsection B of Law 58375. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Birgalon's national animal is the horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
