Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Materialistic State of Sturcture is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Max Planck with an iron fist, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.246 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 86.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sturcturean economy, worth 663 trillion Photons a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 126,449 Photons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The populace has a pathological fear of computers more advanced than pocket calculators, the giant 80-storey carving of Max Planck in Mount Rushless can be seen from space, local executives are seen on the corner with cardboard signs reading "will oppress the masses for food", and penal labor is a de facto death sentence. 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 1st in Puritatem and 21,425th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 53 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
