Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Red Empire of Black Friday is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 18.255 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 26.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Black Fridayian economy, worth a remarkable 2,743 trillion Irish golds a year, is highly 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 150,264 Irish golds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Polling place volunteers are suddenly opening a huge number of offshore bank accounts, major corporations receive tax breaks for no apparent reason, the airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, and politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income. 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 2,357th in the world and 1st in The Skeleton Army for Highest Economic Output, with 2,743 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
