Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Indefatigable Fiefdom of Spunky Doughnut is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Lord Baron Glorious Perivale-Harris with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, state-planned economy, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 23.993 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 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Spunky Doughnutian economy, worth an astonishing 13,338 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 555,929 Blaggers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,631,212 per year while the poor average 149,354, a ratio of 10.9 to 1.

Science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, and believers must practice religion behind church doors lest the government smite them with a mighty fine. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Spunky Doughnut's national animal is the Blubber-Arsed Fatso, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Cult Of Perivale-Harris.

Spunky Doughnut is ranked 21st in the Pacific and 1,234th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 917 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
