OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Federation of Public Idiots is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Zap with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 13.399 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 government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Social Equality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Great Asylum. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, followed by Tourism and Information Technology.

Employers may fire workers without giving any reason, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, discarded pennies litter the streets, and cheese has become the new icon of political dissent. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Public Idiots's national animal is the byakko, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is believing in yourself, and its currency is the ping.

Public Idiots is ranked 12th in Europe and 868th in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 15 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
