ARABIA BUT WORSE

Population514 million

The Principality of ARABIA BUT WORSE is a huge, safe nation, notable for its national health service, public floggings, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 514 million Hoshidians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 50.1%.

The strong ARABIA BUT WORSEian economy, worth 18.7 trillion chocolate chip cookieses a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 36,329 chocolate chip cookieses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

The 'Half King of Maxtopia' exhibit is the least popular amongst museum-goers, choice roles for female actors involve asking "Is there anything I can do for you?", prisoners have been known to host cooking and home décor television shows, and policemen regularly conduct midnight raids on closed donut shops to 'collect evidence'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ARABIA BUT WORSE's national animal is the Beer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

ARABIA BUT WORSE is ranked 165,341st in the world and 43rd in The Okchi Union for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring -90.95 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
