Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Controlled Lands of Pikatroid is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Pikatroid with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ban on automobiles, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.5 billion Pikatroidians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order and Environment are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pikatroid City. The average income tax rate is 99.6%.

The enormous but inefficient Pikatroidian economy, worth a remarkable 1,756 trillion Unobtaniums a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Arms Manufacturing industry. Average income is an impressive 100,357 Unobtaniums, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, judges are all-powerful, birds and children's kites are regularly brought down by anti-aircraft fire, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pikatroid's national animal is the Nummy Muffin Coocol Butter, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is a major religion.

Pikatroid is ranked 135th in the Pacific and 2,817th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 5.112 Stalins.
