OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Democratic Republic of Congolian is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program. The compassionate, intelligent population of 16.932 billion Congolianians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 96%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

The nation leads 000 Nudist Dreamland in per capita stalking, midnight pizza breaks are common among the work-from-home population, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, and knitting needles have been banned in the name of public safety. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Congolian's national animal is the elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the pubble.

Congolian is ranked 1st in 000 Nudist Dreamland and 57,813th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.287 Stalins.
