Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Place In the Sun of Papercuts and Skittles is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Ess with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, strictly enforced bedtime, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.147 billion Skitkers are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Brunswick. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Papercuts and Skittlesian economy, worth a remarkable 2,323 trillion Shots a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 228,974 Shots, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,025,783 per year while the poor average 31,643, a ratio of 32.4 to 1.

The native owl population is in permanent hibernation, turning eighteen is often referred to as the 'Age of Aquarius', many politicians are serving jail time for minor drug offenses, and billions are being spent on a new island airport. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 180,066th in the world and 8,169th in the West Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 25.22 Years.
