The Contrary clowns of THE KANGAROO is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by El Presidente Kanga with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 24.75 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 dominated by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy aren't funded at all. 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 10,479 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 423,398 pogosticks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Military spending recently hit a new high, mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation, groups of three or more trees are cut down in the name of 'child safety', and the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists. 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 194th in the world for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 13 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
