Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Skeletal Marketplace of Black Friday is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, hatred of cheese, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 16.114 billion Black Fridayians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The medium-sized, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Welfare, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Law & Order and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bone City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 23.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Black Fridayian economy, worth a remarkable 2,194 trillion fridenaroes a year, is quite specialized and dominated 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 136,186 fridenaroes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 497,860 per year while the poor average 26,424, a ratio of 18.8 to 1.

Cities are engulfed by smog, meat-eating is frowned upon, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Black Friday's national animal is the black mamba, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Black Friday is ranked 1st in The Skeleton Army and 9,091st in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 71 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
