The 23 of ----------------------- is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by West-Flanders with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 13.35 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.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paq. Income tax is unheard of.

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.

Eminent domain has been abolished, the government is a law unto itself, military spending is on the increase, and citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. -----------------------'s national animal is the 23, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Blaat.

----------------------- is ranked 133,610th in the world and 122nd in belgium for Most Authoritarian, with 0.01 Stalins.
