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 barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 17.753 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 Education and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Healthcare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Beech Beach House. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10.5%.

The very strong Stick-ish economy, worth a remarkable 1,406 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 79,219 toothpicks, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.

A well-funded social safety net protects the unfortunate, student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned walking stickball fields, the government is engaging in an agricultural trade war with Maxtopia, and the education system has gotten a recent boost in spending. 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 4,483rd in the Pacific and 101,166th in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 9 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
