Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Black-Balled Bouncers of -Mr Stick- is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Branch Manager QA Stick with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, public floggings, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 17.177 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, with Industry, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Healthcare and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Beech Beach House. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.1%.

The very strong Stick-ish economy, worth a remarkable 1,366 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 79,574 toothpicks, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

Discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, citizens are more concerned about voting for Big Brother contestants than politicians, an increasingly villainous series of sports coaches are demanding the national mascot's true identity, and emigration to countries with labor laws is all the rage. 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 4,769th in the Pacific and 111,043rd in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 0 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
