The Military Commission of Soup

The Armed Republic of The Military Commission of Soup is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.254 billion Military Commission of Soupians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 69.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Military Commission of Soupian economy, worth 67.7 trillion Soups 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, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, 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 53,975 Soups, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The term "Native Military Commission Of Soupian" has been redefined as anyone with the same skin color as the majority, the government confiscates candy from babies for 'the greater good' of the nation, nudity is frowned upon, and lobbyists are trying to convince government to recategorize most natural disasters as "non-critical naturogenic inconveniences". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Military Commission of Soup's national animal is the Soup Gull, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Military Commission of Soup is ranked 197,216th in the world and 8,557th in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 63.69 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
