The Mango Mega Corporation of Fruitful is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its closed borders, deadly medical pandemics, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 744 million Fruitfuls are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Welfare and Law & Order not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mangzilia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Fruitful economy, worth 107 trillion MangoCoin™s a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 143,973 MangoCoin™s, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 653,743 per year while the poor average 19,419, a ratio of 33.7 to 1.

Fruitfuls wonder "if a tree falls in the woods with no credible witnesses, who wants to know?", couples are discouraged from marrying until they can rank their partner on a scale of one to ten, the flight attendant who draws the short straw is on "cockpit bucket duty", and labour strikes are routinely squashed by police. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Fruitful's national animal is the Kardashian, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Fruitful is ranked 25,644th in the world and 93rd in Europeia for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 54.29 Whatever.
