The Kingslayer of A mean old man is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by a tired and angry old fart with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, avowedly heterosexual populace, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 20.978 billion Floridians 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, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Social Policy and Education are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the world. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient old as hell economy, worth a remarkable 7,320 trillion colostomy bags a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 348,973 colostomy bags, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,257,431 per year while the poor average 69,254, a ratio of 18.2 to 1.

Maintaining economic growth is no laughing matter, petitioners are increasingly resorting to climbing through a tired and angry old fart's window to draw attention to their issues, politicians' financial records are locked up tighter than the nation's colostomy bag reserves, and Merry Birthday is a popular protest song despite the risk of fines and royalty dues. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. A mean old man's national animal is the really old cat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is forgotten.

A mean old man is ranked 681st in the world and 1st in Lytic for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 411.92 on the Hayek Index.
