Economy & Technology

Type of Economy – Democratic Socialism. A form of welfare state in which the state plays a key role in the protection and promotion of the economic and social well-being of its citizens both as individuals and as a collective society. It is based on the principles of equality of opportunity, equitable distribution of wealth, and public responsibility for those individuals unable to avail themselves of the minimal provisions of an acceptable standard of life. While at the same time preserving the concept of free market principals and protecting private property rights for individual citizens.

National Currency – The Bit

Technological Level – A developing 21st century level of technology. Because many of our citizens came from technologically advanced nations (between 21st and 23rd century levels of technology), we have the knowledge regarding advanced technologies however, we currently lack sufficient resources to implement them to their fullest existent.
It other words we have the know how and skills to implement a PMT level of technology in our society but do to lack of sufficient resources we can at this time only implement a MT level.
We do have:
a telecommunications system,
a televised broadcast system,
and an internet system with e-mail.
ect.

Major Products and Exports
Current Imports
communications technology
medicine
military hardware
food
construction tools and supplies

National Animal
Image
The citizens of Bunny Haven are both proud and confused to call the Jackalope it's national animal.
Rumored to have been the very first animal ever sighted by the first settlers to Bunny Haven. The Jackalope remains a cultural oddity for our proud and somewhat eccentric nation, much like Scotland’s Loch Ness Monster or North America's Bigfoot, many people have claimed to have seen Jackalope within our forest, however, one has never been caught on film nor has any “real” scientific evidence of it’s existence been found. Nonetheless, it remains a great and unending source of pop culture and tourism for our nation.
Today about 3/4 of our citizens believe the jackalope exist while the other 1/4 believe that our health industry's criteria defining what constitutes mental instability is too narrow.

Culture – The citizens of Bunny Haven are well known for their fierce patriotism to the crown. The people are also well known for a somewhat goofy sense of humor, walking down the streets it would not be difficult to spot street performers dancing in bear costumes or average people shouting obscenities in to envelopes before depositing them into postboxes. Street art lines the wall of our buildings more often than not featuring pictures of goats (a social gag whose origins no one is truly sure of).
Winter is a great time of joy, demonstrated by the festive holiday atmosphere, the yearly state sponsored snowman contest and the many sled races down mount Pegasus.
Our courts have ruled that the ability and means to use psychoactive drugs and or substances to is an inalienable right inherent to all people.
- more to come -

History – pending
