Democratic North Korea

Population15.148 billion



The Corporeal States of Democratic North Korea is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Bowser with an iron fist, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 15.148 billion Democratic North Koreans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Helsinki. The average income tax rate is 45.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Democratic North Korean economy, worth a remarkable 3,317 trillion Qevas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 219,019 Qevas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, an inkwell of goats' blood is supplied on school desks across the nation, and rocket boots and thermal detonators have become standard-issue military gear. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Democratic North Korea's national animal is the Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Democratic North Korea is ranked 9,772nd in the world and 508th in Lazarus for Smartest Citizens, with 93.44 quips per hour.
