Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Confederation of Agymnum is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by the Regent Board with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, parental licensing program, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, humorless population of 7.247 billion Agymnumians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Social Policy, Defense, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central University. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Agymnumian economy, worth a remarkable 1,648 trillion Ceths a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 227,493 Ceths, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military pilots spend more time scraping feathers off their engines than flying their aircraft, stoned tourists don't tend to remember much about their holidays here, oddly patriotic flash mobs spontaneously sing the national anthem, and pushy mums tell their kids to be doctors and engineers but steer them away from being penniless lawyers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Agymnum's national animal is the Chelonoidis nigra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Agymnum is ranked 126,534th in the world and 39th in Madhouse Productions for Most Extreme, scoring 8.73 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
