The Confederacy of Splendiferousness is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Sir Splendiferous with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.12 billion Splendiferousnessians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Welfare and Social Policy not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Splendiferousness City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.7%.
The all-consuming Splendiferousnessian economy, worth 229 trillion Splendids a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 108,161 Splendids, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 502,502 per year while the poor average 13,991, a ratio of 35.9 to 1.
There are no minimum wage laws, women earn less than half the salary of men if they can even find a job, the government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, and torture is illegal. Crime is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Splendiferousness's national animal is the Penguin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
