Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Shroom Empire of New Mushroom Kingdom is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Kid-Emperor Napoleon II with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program, prohibition of alcohol, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.912 billion Mushrooms are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Toad Town. The average income tax rate is 79.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Mushroomian economy, worth a remarkable 1,610 trillion mushroom coins a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 147,574 mushroom coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

The government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, abortions are routinely performed in New Mushroom Kingdom's hospitals, and tabloids coo over Kid-Emperor Napoleon II's expected child. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Mushroom Kingdom's national animal is the mushroom, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is a major religion.

New Mushroom Kingdom is ranked 1st in Vissella and 3,967th in the world for Lowest Crime Rates, scoring 337.505 on the Relative Freedom From Crime Index.
