The Orange Streak In The Sky of Papercuts and Skittles is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Ess with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program, enslaved workforce, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 9.992 billion Skitkers are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The tiny, corrupt 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 2.5%.
The all-consuming Papercuts and Skittlesian economy, worth a remarkable 2,114 trillion Stingers a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 211,662 Stingers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 746,584 per year while the poor average 43,408, a ratio of 17.2 to 1.
The might of the nation's military are undertaking a long march to colonisation in Brasilistan, PAS-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age, "To Hell or to Marshland" is a common settler cry directed at native Brasilistanis, and phone taps are frequently carried out by the police. 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.
