Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Dominion of Complete Bastards is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Supreme Bastard with an iron fist, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, unlimited-speed roads, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 31.053 billion Complete Bastards 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 minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Social Policy and Environment not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gekkopolis. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Completely Bastardic economy, worth an astonishing 24,712 trillion shticlars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 795,814 shticlars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,857,970 per year while the poor average 95,022, a ratio of 40.6 to 1.

The nanny industry has had a boom after maternity leave was recently banned, vile black smog from coal power plants has enveloped several major urban centres, citizens who don't recite the Pledge of Complete Bastards at least three times a day are placed on a terrorist watch-list, and smog in Gekkopolis is so bad that fresh air bottles are sold by street vendors. 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. Complete Bastards's national animal is the spotted jackal, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Basic Fundamentalism.

Complete Bastards is ranked 30th in the world and 11th in Wysteria for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 61,984.87 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
