Retched Stench

Population1.552 billion


The Grand Duchy of Retched Stench is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, keen interest in outer space, and frequent executions. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.552 billion Retched Stenchians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.2%.

The strong Retched Stenchian economy, worth 80.4 trillion pesos a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 51,791 pesos, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.

Religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, teenagers stay out into the wee hours of the morning "stargazing", no suburban lawn is complete without barbed wire and landmines, and sex offenders find themselves cut off from the ability to repeat their crimes. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Retched Stench's national animal is the leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Retched Stench is ranked 66,574th in the world and 1st in Recollection for Most Beautiful Environments, with 608.39 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
