The 23 of ----------------------- is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by West-Flanders with an even hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, enslaved workforce, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 14.421 billion -----------------------ians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

Average income is an impressive 193,540 23s, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,125,901 per year while the poor average 15,727, a ratio of 71.6 to 1.

----------------------- is ranked 151,458th in the world and 129th in belgium for Most Authoritarian, with 0.01 Stalins.
