Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Contrary clowns of THE KANGAROO is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by El Presidente Kanga with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, complete lack of public education, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 24.946 billion KANGAROOS 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 tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of BruciesBarandGrill. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient me economy, worth an astonishing 10,456 trillion pogosticks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 419,157 pogosticks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Dissident voters are sent on a 'relaxing break' at the Ministry of Love, healthcare funding has been cut, the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, and the nation has always been at war with Bigtopia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. THE KANGAROO's national animal is the tree, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Cult of the divinedipsomaniac.

THE KANGAROO is ranked 1st in Celtic warrior and 257th in the world for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 16 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
