The Commonwealth of Bats is a tiny, socially progressive nation, renowned for its burgeoning flying fox population. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 5 million 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 is mainly concerned with Social Welfare, although Healthcare and Education are on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 28%, but much higher for the wealthy. A small private sector is dominated by the Furniture Restoration industry.
Crime is relatively low. Bats's national animal is the flying fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the pterop.
