Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Black-Balled Bouncers of -Mr Stick- is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Branch Manager QA Stick with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 16.414 billion Sticks are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Healthcare and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Beech Beach House. The average income tax rate is 8.4%.

The very strong Stick-ish economy, worth a remarkable 1,323 trillion toothpicks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 80,642 toothpicks, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

The minority inevitably have their addenda vetoed, the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor, citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages, and political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. -Mr Stick-'s national animal is the walking stick, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Anti-marsupialism.

-Mr Stick- is ranked 474th in the Pacific and 16,179th in the world for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 3 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
