Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Perpendicular Parallels of Perpendiculous is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Wright Engle with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, deadly medical pandemics, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 15.841 billion Perpendiculousians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, although Education is also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of 90 Degree Haven. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Perpendiculousian economy, worth a remarkable 6,703 trillion Gold Bullions a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 423,204 Gold Bullions, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,655,696 per year while the poor average 73,692, a ratio of 22.5 to 1.

Wealthy parents-to-be can select their perfect baby, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, an increasingly villainous series of sports coaches are demanding the national mascot's true identity, and elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Perpendiculous's national animal is the Phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Capitalism.

Perpendiculous is ranked 139th in Capitalist Paradise and 10,185th in the world for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, scoring 166 on the Inverse Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
