North Bulgogi

The Democratic Republic of North Bulgogi is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The cynical, devout population of 216 million North Bulgogians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 76.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant North Bulgogian economy, worth 1.05 trillion chodes 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 led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 4,883 chodes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Babysitters are a thing of the past, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, ten-year-olds are applying for lemonade stand operator licences, and pet owners must make a payment if their charges leave a deposit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North Bulgogi's national animal is the living chode, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

North Bulgogi is ranked 146,601st in the world and 5,079th in Balder for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.08 Crimes Per Hour.
