Coronary Bypass

Population418 million


The People's Republic of Coronary Bypass is a huge, genial nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 418 million Bypassians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.6%.

The powerhouse Coronary Bypassian economy, worth 38.8 trillion Cells a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is 92,800 Cells, with the richest citizens earning 7.3 times as much as the poorest.

Crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, visitors to the famed rainforests are instead taken to vast furniture factories, bins outnumber trees in city parks, and fat-shaming is now public policy. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Coronary Bypass's national animal is the Dodo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Coronary Bypass is ranked 12,426th in the world and 142nd in 10000 Islands for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 5,934.78 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
