Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Flatulent Bleatings of Pompous Windbags is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Lord Maximillian with an iron fist, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, complete lack of public education, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 24.035 billion Pompous Windbagsians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Windbag. The average income tax rate is 57.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pompous Windbagsian economy, worth a remarkable 7,122 trillion bones a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is an amazing 296,352 bones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, and a crusade against barbaric religious practices has begun. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Pompous Windbags's national animal is the kestrel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Christianity.

Pompous Windbags is ranked 4th in Free States of Gaia and 16,192nd in the world for Most Extreme, scoring 29 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
