The Premature Pulsing Mass of Teribula is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Grand CEO the bird with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.304 billion Teribulans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.
The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, 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 Huge Plots Inc. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33.4%.
The frighteningly efficient Teribulan economy, worth a remarkable 1,356 trillion just keep buying craps a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 255,800 just keep buying craps, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,391,306 per year while the poor average 24,180, a ratio of 57.5 to 1.
Politicians cheer the nation's surging death rate, torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals, the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, and psychological disorders are a taboo subject.
