The Too old to try of Punk Reloaded is a gargantuan, safe nation, notable for its punitive income tax rates, suspicion of poets, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-working, democratic population of 11.088 billion Punk Reloadedians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 81.4%.
The strong Punk Reloadedian economy, worth 438 trillion flaxes a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery and Cheese Exports. Average income is 39,504 flaxes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.
Citizens rise at daybreak every day for mandatory exercise, dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, and the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Punk Reloaded's national animal is the dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.
Punk Reloaded is ranked 2,104th in The North Pacific and 57,328th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 73 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
