Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Antarctica Founders of Joop is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Joop Polarbear with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful population of 27.006 billion Joopians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny, liberal, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Icetown. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Joopian economy, worth a remarkable 3,906 trillion Polar Crowns a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 144,640 Polar Crowns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,081,168 per year while the poor average 5,636, a ratio of 191 to 1.

Students abandon classrooms for online education, euthanasia is legal, the nightly news reports prosaically on the government blindly throwing money at despotic kidnappers, and the nation's coasts have been left unprotected while the entire navy sits in Brasilistani waters. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive. Joop's national animal is the Polar Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

Joop is ranked 179,047th in the world and 56th in Antarctica for Most Primitive, scoring -201.16 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
