The Zombie Nukers of Look at me is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Wonderdoctor with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent medical pandemics, parental licensing program, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 26.318 billion Lookatmes are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Radioactive Batcave. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Meanlooking economy, worth an astonishing 17,188 trillion Blood of Christs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is a breathtaking 653,112 Blood of Christs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,387,073 per year while the poor average 68,235, a ratio of 49.6 to 1.
Billions of Blood of Christs are being blown on orbital weapons development, military spending recently hit a new high, the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, and citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Look at me. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Look at me's national animal is the Bloodsucker, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Wonderdocterism.
