Armanium

Population404 million

The Kingdom of Armanium is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, avant-garde cinema, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 404 million Armaniumians 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Healthcare, and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 18.0%.

The powerhouse Armaniumian economy, worth 37.8 trillion bitcoins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 93,562 bitcoins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 334,724 per year while the poor average 18,774, a ratio of 17.8 to 1.

Supermarkets must refund spoilt milk even six months after the sale, withdrawal of support for drug addicts is leaving many with cold sweats, the government encourages conflict abroad to increase arms sales, and retail stores have reported mile-long lines after the ban on video games was lifted. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Armanium's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Armanium is ranked 31,943rd in the world and 2nd in Anime Girls for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 3,739.02 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
