The Weed-Choked Lawn of A mean old man is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the benevolent Doctor Henry Killinger with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 14.8 billion Pacificans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the world. The average income tax rate is 96.2%.
The frighteningly efficient Pacifican economy, worth a remarkable 5,364 trillion Francoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an amazing 362,452 Francoes, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,369,948 per year while the poor average 66,720, a ratio of 20.5 to 1.
Military spending recently hit a new high, only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations, military spending is on the increase, and police officers have nearly cracked a major underage astronomy syndicate. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. A mean old man's national animal is the really old cat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Francoism.
