The Biggles Syndicate

Population9.144 billion

CapitalFission City
LeaderDirk Valence


The Rogue Nation of The Biggles Syndicate is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Dirk Valence with a fair hand, and notable for its triple-decker prams, ubiquitous missile silos, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 9.144 billion Syndicaters love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fission City. The average income tax rate is 79.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Biggles Syndicatean economy, worth a remarkable 1,021 trillion Biggies a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 111,739 Biggies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Thousands of former welfare recipients are in a revolutionary uproar as the rest of society is enjoying a hefty tax break, urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, and romantic sunsets are no longer interrupted by explosions and monstrous roars. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Biggles Syndicate's national animal is the Parrot, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Presbyterianism.

The Biggles Syndicate is ranked 146,601st in the world and 1,276th in 10000 Islands for Most Pro-Market, scoring 30.44 on the Rand Index.
