Bend Mai

Population2.09 billion

LeaderErick I


The Empire of Bend Mai is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Erick I with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, pith helmet sales, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 2.09 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 373 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 178,900 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Builders across Bend Mai are blocked up with orders for new public loos, the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, the monarch frequently needs protecting from misfiring protection, and political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions. 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 236,640th in the world and 9,462nd in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 4.03 Obesity Rate.
