Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Black-Balled Bouncers of -Mr Stick- is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Branch Manager QA Stick with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, absence of drug laws, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 16.61 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 government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Industry, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Healthcare and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Beech Beach House. The average income tax rate is 9.8%.

The very strong Stick-ish economy, worth a remarkable 1,293 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 77,895 toothpicks, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

Coalition governments are essential to passing new laws, the Father of the House has been in office just shy of a fortnight, the government is outsourcing itself, and the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people'. 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 1,947th in the Pacific and 39,207th in the world for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 2 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
