Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Eyes to the Sky of Papercuts and Skittles is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Ess with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.566 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, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with 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. Income tax is unheard of.

The thriving Papercuts and Skittlesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,634 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 190,857 Cuts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

The government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, airport security is provided by private companies, the government is cracking down on subversive groups, and all beauty contests have been banned. 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 10th in the West Pacific and 829th in the world for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 52 Valid Endorsements.
