Ciggie Smallistan

Population3.335 billion



The People's Republic of Ciggie Smallistan is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Ixus with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.335 billion Ciggie Smallistanians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of OOO-FS. The average income tax rate is 73.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Ciggie Smallistanian economy, worth 391 trillion ISKS a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 117,469 ISKS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, it turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage, and popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ciggie Smallistan's national animal is the Rat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Hammerite.

Ciggie Smallistan is ranked 136,499th in the world and 4,984th in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -7.42 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
