Bar Sing Chul

Population359 million


The Incorporated States of Bar Sing Chul is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 359 million Bar Sing Chulians 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 26.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Bar Sing Chulian economy, worth 38.6 trillion Caps a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 107,609 Caps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Popular websites like NationStates are blocked for "national security", there's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services, shanty towns are forming in the suburbs of major cities, and a cyber-war between file sharers and the music industry formats hard drives across the country. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bar Sing Chul's national animal is the Sealion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Bar Sing Chul is ranked 101,808th in the world and 3,541st in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 1,337.79 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
