Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Unassuming Puppet State of Americad is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Joseph with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, vat-grown people, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 25.31 billion follower of Josephs are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Joseph City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Josephic economy, worth an astonishing 25,464 trillion monies a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 1,006,114 monies, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,620,758 per year while the poor average 132,925, a ratio of 34.8 to 1.

Protests are prohibited from blocking traffic, labour strikes are routinely squashed by police, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', and pollution is on the rise along with government approvals of fracking projects. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Americad's national animal is the viper, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Josephism.

Americad is ranked 12th in the world and 1st in The New Inquisition for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 129,197.23 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
