OverviewFactbookPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The United Federation of Plisskenstan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Andrew Jackson with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 14.087 billion hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Social Welfare receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thingamageek. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 12%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, followed by Tourism and Retail.

Cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, the government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, and young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables. Crime is well under control, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Plisskenstan's national animal is the Chupacabra, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Sponk.

Plisskenstan is ranked 114th in Capitalist Paradise and 5,345th in the world for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 6 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
