The Publicschoolian economy, worth 47.6 trillion Stolen Monies 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 large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Retail, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. 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 54,555 Stolen Monies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.
