Cowboy Bebop

Population7.033 billion


The Real Folk Blues of Cowboy Bebop is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 7.033 billion Cowboy Bebopians 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, Healthcare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 60.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Cowboy Bebopian economy, worth 203 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Pizza Delivery, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 28,954 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voting is voluntary, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, all tariffs have been abolished, and organ donation is compulsory. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cowboy Bebop's national animal is the drago, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cowboy Bebop is ranked 177,911th in the world and 5,336th in Artificial Solar System for Most Primitive, scoring -97.26 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
