The Perpendicular Parallels of Perpendiculous is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Wright Engle with a fair hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, frequent executions, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 15.546 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 6,570 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 422,622 Gold Bullions, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,653,415 per year while the poor average 73,590, a ratio of 22.5 to 1.
Voting is voluntary, commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies, the judicial branch is strongly influenced by major corporations, and citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes. 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.
