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 barren, inhospitable landscape, flagrant waste-dumping, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 23.674 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 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Spunky Doughnutian economy, worth an astonishing 13,151 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 555,531 Blaggers, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle, cinemas play art-house movies to ever-shrinking audiences as film critics rule the industry, the police are tightening their grip on alcohol smugglers, and parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list. 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 10th in the Pacific and 306th in the world for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 16 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
