Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Democratic Republic of Basketweaving Monkeys is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Lee Gustafen with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, vat-grown people, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.504 billion Basketweaving Monkeysians 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 relatively small, 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 Non Sequitur City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.5%.

The all-consuming Basketweaving Monkeysian economy, worth a remarkable 1,528 trillion Cryptoids a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 179,754 Cryptoids, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.

Mandatory electronic currency is a boon for credit card companies and government surveillance, children as young as eight can be found working in factories, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, and an IT mega-corporation has a patent pending on the rectangle. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Basketweaving Monkeys's national animal is the Gray Langur, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Monkeyism.

Basketweaving Monkeys is ranked 3,421st in Balder and 116,817th in the world for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring -15 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
