CapitalCidade das Caricatas


The Kingdom of Pais das Caricatas is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, daily referendums, and exploding hoverboards. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 678 million Caricatasianos 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 medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cidade das Caricatas. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.3%.

The powerhouse Pais da Caricatasian economy, worth 69.2 trillion libras a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 102,133 libras, with the richest citizens earning 9.1 times as much as the poorest.

Pedal-powered removal vans are a popular Maxxmas gift for the children of separated parents, prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams, one year's corporation tax from three international megacorporations has funded one dozen shiny black pencils for Leader's office, and reports of attacks by bright purple sixty-foot high spiders have recently shot up. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pais das Caricatas's national animal is the cisne, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pais das Caricatas is ranked 33,815th in the world and 478th in Europe for Most Developed, scoring 73.11 on the Human Development Index.
