Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Place In the Sun of Papercuts and Skittles is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Geoff with an iron fist, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ban on automobiles, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.531 billion Cutters 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, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. 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 Skittlesian economy, worth a remarkable 2,582 trillion Slits a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 245,257 Slits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,278,522 per year while the poor average 25,352, a ratio of 50.4 to 1.

There have been reports of people marrying housepets, children in school learn that marriage and slavery go hand in hand, the government's official stance on religion is that it is so very silly, and oddly patriotic flash mobs spontaneously sing the national anthem. 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 Papercut, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Papercuts and Skittles is ranked 2,401st in the world and 31st in the West Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 245,257.22 Standard Monetary Units.
