Mushroom Gorge

Population853 million

CapitalMushroom City


The Baloo Kingdom of Mushroom Gorge is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Nem with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, unlimited-speed roads, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 853 million Mushroom Gorgers 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mushroom City. The average income tax rate is 28.9%.

The strong Mushroom Gorger economy, worth 47.0 trillion wumingazzes a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 55,069 wumingazzes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Maintaining economic growth is no laughing matter, kids refer to anything below the neck as "the parts that shall not be named", old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force. Mushroom Gorge's national animal is the fish, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Mushroom Gorge is ranked 146,669th in the world and 42nd in Callista for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 741.89 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
