The Perpendicular Parallels of Perpendiculous is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Wright Engle with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 16.076 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, with Education also on the agenda, 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 6,802 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 423,156 Gold Bullions, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,655,505 per year while the poor average 73,683, a ratio of 22.5 to 1.
Elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, the police force is on a recruitment drive, and dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission. 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.
