Butterfly Ballot

Population33.436 billion


The Hanging Chad of Butterfly Ballot is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 33.436 billion Butterfly Ballotians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 78.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Butterfly Ballotian economy, worth a remarkable 1,372 trillion moonstones a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry. Average income is 41,060 moonstones, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voting is compulsory and citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Butterfly Ballot's national animal is the panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Butterfly Ballot is ranked 16,447th in the world and 3rd in Florida for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 8,278.37 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
