There is currently no UBI system in place in the Democratic Republic, however some members of the Communist Party have proposed that Prime Minister-designate Park Sang-Hee's proposed plan to adjust the current unemployment allowance to a flat monthly allowance of 1100 GDY (~US$2022) should instead be granted to all Gandoorese citizens aged 20 and older, not just the unemployed.

Universal Basic Income within the Holy Kingdom does not exist, as the Monarchy believes, after significant research, that it disincentives people from working, thus harming our economy. However, we do offer a form of welfare for those of whom are physically, mentally, and economically unable to work. With that welfare program, citizens are rewarded $1,200 a month for six months, assuming that they will be able to find a job within that time period. Extensions are granted to those of whom qualify for the extension.

There is no UBI in the People's Republic. Instead, we provide Universal Basic Services which all residents of our nation are entitled to. Those wishing to obtain a higher standard of living must find gainful employment serving the public good, which the vast majority of people do. Additionally, the elderly (85+), parents of minors, and the disabled are eligible for state subsidies

There is no UBI in Pooshland - it would harm our economy (discouraging people from working, and we would also have to raise our taxes).

A UBI system was enacted by the Labour-LibDem government in 2014. Under it, all citizens aged between 18 and 65 receive an additional monthly income of 1000€ in addition to whatever income they would earn normally. Citizens aged older than 65 (the mandatory retirement age) receive a 1500€ monthly income from the government.

Ru does not have the universal basic income. The opinion of our government is that a fair minimum wage for those who can work, and an effective welfare system for those who can't, will take care of the necessities of our most vulnerable citizens. The UBI would be seen as a rather extreme progressive idea in Ru.

The aristocracy and government have tested both UBI and NIT (Negative Income Tax) over the years, and prefer the latter...due to the fact that UBI is an inferior system with prettier packaging. As a 3000+ year old society, we cannot afford pretty packages.

Although Ceroem has an established welfare system with unemployment benefits and laws on the minimum wage, there is no Universal Basic Income in Ceroem. However, the pro-UBI Reform/Democratic Union Alliance has earned many votes off the back of their support for a trial of a basic income in large cities in Ceroem, and promises that if that was successful that the programme would be extended nationwide. However, a rising number of people have begun to support the idea of a Negative Income Tax, which is advocated by both members of the government and opposition parties.

We have a simple system , you work. People who deserve nothing , shall get nothing. For those who have gotten nothing out of their own choices it isn't our fault. For those who have made impacts due to some larger power , we shall give them restitute. For those who done nothing and have implicitly wish to do nothing , their shall be nothing. For those who can do nothing for themselves we shall help them if possible

All citizens of Apiary One are employed by the state in communal farms and factories, and are paid a flat allowance in return. Party members have salaries.
The brainchild of a former war criminal, Apiary One started out as a population experiment. By harnessing free labor, it brought in massive profits to its creator, who used the cash to build up a luxurious capital city and attract foreign investment. This in turn generated more wealth, allowing the nation to develop into a marvelous masterpiece of progress and efficiency. But there's a darker side that they don't want you to see...
