Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Perpendicular Parallels of Perpendiculous is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Wright Engle with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 17.093 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 receive no funds. 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 7,267 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 significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 425,176 Gold Bullions, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,458,683 per year while the poor average 90,958, a ratio of 16.0 to 1.

Vitriolic divorce proceedings have become prime-time television, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, the government has undertaken a massive education and health program to combat VODAIS, and Phoenixes are becoming popular in pet stores nationwide. 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 3rd in Capitalist Paradise and 69th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 321 Whatever.
