Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Red Empire of Black Friday is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its public floggings, digital currency, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 18.936 billion Black Fridayians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bone City. The average income tax rate is 23.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Black Fridayian economy, worth a remarkable 2,875 trillion Irish golds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 151,855 Irish golds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Most academic research has ground to a halt, businesses often fire workers in favour of cheaper automatic systems, schools offer a range of lessons in subjects as diverse as The Economics of Bullying for Lunch Money, and condemned prisoners spend hours a day sitting in lotus position looking perplexed. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Black Friday's national animal is the black mamba, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Black Friday is ranked 10,755th in the world and 2nd in The Skeleton Army for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 8,434.4 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
