King Pepa of the Pig

Population725 million

The Holy Empire of King Pepa of the Pig is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its infamous sell-swords, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 725 million King Pepa of the Pigians 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient King Pepa of the Pigian economy, worth 31.2 trillion Bricks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 43,042 Bricks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Telling someone to 'break a leg' is considered a criminal inducement to self harm, psychological disorders are a taboo subject, state dairy cow's milk is a shear-thickening fluid that can stop small-caliber bullets, and the police crack down on tax evaders without mercy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. King Pepa of the Pig's national animal is the Flying mongoose , which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

King Pepa of the Pig is ranked 149,037th in the world and 8,300th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 47.09 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
