The Belgrade Bloc

The Democratic States of The Belgrade Bloc is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The quiet, industrious population of 715 million citizens 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.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 42.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Belgrade Blocian economy, worth 27.0 trillion minimum vouchers a year, is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 37,765 minimum vouchers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Tampons are used as cheap fishing bobbers, the government is attempting to revitalize a gutted private sector, political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, and all recreational drugs are legal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Belgrade Bloc's national animal is the cat.

The Belgrade Bloc is ranked 93,707th in the world and 28th in United Nations UN for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 2,632.41 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
