The Botched Pejazzle of the Studly Spud

The Half-Baked Abrogation of The Botched Pejazzle of the Studly Spud is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Studly Spud with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 9.562 billion Monster Mash are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Spudtopia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 53.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Mashed economy, worth a remarkable 4,039 trillion Chips a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 422,496 Chips, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,609,014 per year while the poor average 76,838, a ratio of 20.9 to 1.

Almost all of the nation's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, multiple births are a cause of celebration for tax collectors, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, and all judiciary cases are decided in the court of public opinion. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Botched Pejazzle of the Studly Spud's national animal is the Spudazzle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Spudlyism.

The Botched Pejazzle of the Studly Spud is ranked 183,987th in the world and 278th in Spiritus for Most Authoritarian, with 300.2 milliStalins.
