NationStates | The Bears of Burrrduffy

NationStates | The Bears of Burrrduffy:

"The Bears of Burrrduffy is a massive, economically powerful nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 1.475 billion enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded individuals juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Commerce. Income tax is unheard of. A substantial private sector is dominated by the Uranium Mining industry.

Referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population, there have been reports of people marrying housepets, wealthy parents-to-be can select their perfect baby, and the number of children one can have is restricted by law. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Burrrduffy's national animal is the dog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the martini.

Burrrduffy is ranked 1179th in Galactic Republic and 30,670th in the world for Fastest-Growing Economies."
