Joao 3005

The Federal Republic of Joao 3005 is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.7 billion Joao 3005ians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 41.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Joao 3005ian economy, worth 465 trillion marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 172,300 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Being able to unblock a u-bend pipe is considered a universally essential skill, the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, people who tease dwarfs are being cut down to size, and "Mad Max: Returning Again to Barrydrome" is this year's unexpected summer blockbuster. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Joao 3005's national animal is the lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Joao 3005 is ranked 210,169th in the world and 7,030th in The East Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 23.14 Insults Per Minute.
