Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Antarctica Founders of Joop is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Joop Polarbear with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful population of 28.318 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 4,096 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 144,670 Polar Crowns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,081,392 per year while the poor average 5,638, a ratio of 191 to 1.

Euthanasia is legal, the nightly news reports prosaically on the government blindly throwing money at despotic kidnappers, the nation's coasts have been left unprotected while the entire navy sits in Brasilistani waters, and the might of the nation's air force has been deployed against people with sticks in boats. 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 173,638th in the world and 60th in Antarctica for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 4.21 Effective Tax Rate.
