Paintbucket the Great

The Republic of Paintbucket the Great is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its public floggings, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 239 million Paintholders are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 54.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Paintbucketian economy, worth 7.07 trillion cans a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 29,580 cans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references, executions often take hours as amateurs attempt to find veins, Paintbucket the Great has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, and more money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paintbucket the Great's national animal is the manatee, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Paintbucket the Great is ranked 121,065th in the world and 1,209th in 10000 Islands for Most Extreme, scoring 15.85 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
