Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Place in the Sun of Papercuts and Skittles is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ess with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, national health service, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 9.527 billion Skitkers have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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. The average income tax rate is 5.1%.

The thriving Papercuts and Skittlesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,692 trillion Stingers a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 177,675 Stingers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

The government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance, self-driving cars occasionally mow down pedestrians to avoid inconveniencing passengers, citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, and wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms. 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 Tequilla, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Papercuts and Skittles is ranked 30th in the West Pacific and 2,468th in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 7 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
