Cool Stairs

Population45 million

AnimalThe LOL

The Dictatorship of Cool Stairs is a small, orderly nation, notable for its compulsory military service, hatred of cheese, and restrictive gun laws. The cynical population of 45 million Lusitanians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 52.4%.

The sizeable but inefficient Cool Stairsian economy, worth 1.96 trillion guys a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 43,573 guys, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Lusitanians caught jaywalking often have their houses seized by the police, government popup ads are springing up like weeds, the government terminates employment with extreme prejudice, and fearful citizens watch their every move as does their government. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cool Stairs's national animal is the The LOL, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Cool Stairs is ranked 160,858th in the world and 53rd in United States of UBG for Highest Drug Use, scoring 11.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
