Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Eyes to the Sky of Papercuts and Skittles is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Ess with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.375 billion Cutters 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 minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Law & Order, although Education, Healthcare, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Environment and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Brunswick. The average income tax rate is 1.4%.

The very strong Papercuts and Skittlesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,499 trillion Cuts a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 179,046 Cuts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Photographers have to apply for a license to photograph Ess, Skit is one of the most popular forenames in Papercuts and Skittles, kids laugh off vandalism and arson as "just fun", and government police forces protect public schools from the threat of protest. 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 Skit, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Papercuts and Skittles is ranked 1,350th in the West Pacific and 31,235th in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 2 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
