Spinach Puffs

Population3.572 billion


The Delicious Recipe of Spinach Puffs is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its deadly medical pandemics, unlimited-speed roads, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.572 billion Spinach Puffsians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.3%.

The all-consuming Spinach Puffsian economy, worth 342 trillion spinaches a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Soda Sales. Average income is 95,858 spinaches, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 672,214 per year while the poor average 4,673, a ratio of 143 to 1.

Politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament, nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines, brazen mayors claim official expenses to pay for their drug habits, and murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Spinach Puffs's national animal is the llama, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Spinach Puffs is ranked 218,797th in the world and 2,822nd in Artificial Solar System for Most Authoritarian, with 0.89 milliStalins.
