1000 Dances

Population24.044 billion

LeaderWilson Picket


The Land of 1000 Dances is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Wilson Picket with an iron fist, and remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, flagrant waste-dumping, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 24.044 billion 1000 Dancesians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Environment, with Healthcare, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Watusi. The average income tax rate is 56.2%.

The very strong 1000 Dancesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,324 trillion dances a year, is highly specialized and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 55,088 dances, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

The Sandmen are calling it a night, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, treaties are taken to be mere rules of thumb, and it is considered unpatriotic to learn a foreign language. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive. 1000 Dances's national animal is the shoe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Music.

1000 Dances is ranked 185,043rd in the world and 6th in The Kingdom of Burgundy for Most Pro-Market, scoring 36.89 on the Rand Index.
