Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Indefatigable Fiefdom of Spunky Doughnut is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Lord Baron Glorious Whitworth-Smith with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, anti-smoking policies, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 23.802 billion Spunky Doughnutians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Phartville. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Spunky Doughnutian economy, worth an astonishing 13,334 trillion Blaggers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 560,212 Blaggers, with the richest citizens earning 8.6 times as much as the poorest.

Residents of newly dried out bays live in fear of leaky dikes, muscular women are banned from competing in sporting competitions, Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies, and naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Spunky Doughnut's national animal is the Mother-in-Law, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Cult Of Whitworth-Smith.

Spunky Doughnut is ranked 16th in the Pacific and 942nd in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 28 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
