Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Place in the Sun of Papercuts and Skittles is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Ess with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 9.055 billion Skitkers are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The tiny, corrupt government prioritizes Law & Order, although Education, Healthcare, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Brunswick. The average income tax rate is 2.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Papercuts and Skittlesian economy, worth 971 trillion Stingers a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 107,291 Stingers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy, third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament, commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies, and the government is engaging in an agricultural trade war with Maxtopia. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Papercuts and Skittles's national animal is the Tequilla, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Papercuts and Skittles is ranked 3,305th in the West Pacific and 85,129th in the world for Nudest, with 106 Cheeks per Square Mile.
