Das Pettan

The Dictatorship of Das Pettan is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its digital currency, disturbing lack of elderly people, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 667 million Das Pettanians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 50.3%.

The powerhouse Das Pettanian economy, worth 77.7 trillion Guras a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 116,454 Guras, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Jennifer Government is a bestseller, adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère, fixing attendance at women's matches is a matter of "when they go low, we go high... funding", and acupuncture is routinely prescribed for intravenous drug addicts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Das Pettan's national animal is the Shark, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Das Pettan is ranked 184,700th in the world and 8,783rd in the South Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 18.98 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
