The United States of Boltang is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 919 million Boltangians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 20.0%.
The powerhouse Boltangian economy, worth 83.5 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 90,906 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.
Foreign nations often blame poverty and terrorism on Boltangian selfishness, only AIs know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile, even the most lowly council pen-pusher has the same political power as a senior minister, and babies living in poverty are told to take responsibility for their own fortunes. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Boltang's national animal is the wookies, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
