Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Materialistic State of Sturcture is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Max Planck with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, hatred of cheese, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.063 billion Comrades 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Entropy. The average income tax rate is 89.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sturcturean economy, worth 891 trillion Photons a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 126,154 Photons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new "Bloodbath" orange tree autonomously seeks and destroys independent orchards, recent events in Dàguó have been classified 'for Max Planck's eyes only', the most popular WhoTube videos are ones featuring parodies of iconic songs, and tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sturcture's national animal is the Two-Headed Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Entropy.

Sturcture is ranked 178,092nd in the world and 10,058th in the Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -22.05 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
