Bagong Estado

The Republic of Bagong Estado is a small, orderly nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 36 million Filipinos are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 39.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Filipino economy, worth 1.93 trillion Filipino Pisoes a year, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 53,592 Filipino Pisoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Political gridlock ensues as even the most innocuous legislation is vetoed by the Supreme Court for potential civil rights violations, wigged-out hunters report playing croquet with the Queen of Hearts, forest fires have dropped dramatically as there are hardly any forests left, and retail stores are known for creating their own oddly-similar holidays in the months preceding any major festivity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bagong Estado's national animal is the Carabao, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Bagong Estado is ranked 84,062nd in the world and 48th in World Conference for Most Pro-Market, scoring 46.43 on the Rand Index.
