Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The People's Republic of Black Ops1 is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The quiet, industrious population of 22.259 billion Black Ops1ians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 57.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Black Ops1ian economy, worth a remarkable 1,105 trillion daggers a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 49,644 daggers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

A large concrete wall is being built around the country's borders, poets and writers are regularly rounded up and shot for entertainment, only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations, and the nation's first space rocket -- sponsored by Pepsi and shaped like an enormous soda bottle -- is being developed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Black Ops1's national animal is the caribou, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Black Ops1 is ranked 83,355th in the world and 6th in Alaska for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 65.78 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
