Pretty Much Satan

The Republic of Pretty Much Satan is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The cynical population of 3.307 billion Pretty Much Satanians 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 large, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 50.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Pretty Much Satanian economy, worth 71.6 trillion ergergers 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 Woodchip Exports, Retail, Automobile Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. 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 21,655 ergergers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, and the studies of art and philosophy are banned. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pretty Much Satan's national animal is the gergergerg, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Pretty Much Satan is ranked 216,238th in the world and 7,091st in Balder for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.38 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
