Bend Mai

Population2.095 billion

LeaderErick I


The Empire of Bend Mai is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Erick I with an even hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, sprawling nuclear power plants, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate population of 2.095 billion Bend Maians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Siorjo. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Bend Maian economy, worth 375 trillion guilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 179,150 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

More sidewalk is dedicated to animals than people, military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, pro-democracy regime change has been avoided, and an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bend Mai's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Elotasni.

Bend Mai is ranked 218,565th in the world and 8,602nd in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.34 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
