The Capitalist Consortium of Systemic Corruption is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Chairman Vursht Zamler with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, pith helmet sales, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 811 million employees are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Defense also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mammon. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.6%.

The frighteningly efficient neoliberal economy, worth 138 trillion coupons a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 170,792 coupons, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 668,188 per year while the poor average 29,739, a ratio of 22.5 to 1.

Beat cops aren't named for the territory they patrol, officer recruitment and police brutality have reached an all-time high, there's a mortuary next to every neoliberal restaurant, and the new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?". Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Systemic Corruption's national animal is the poor, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Systemic Corruption is ranked 5,156th in the world and 50th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 12,225.8 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
