Disputed Tyranny

Population26.448 billion


The Free Land of Disputed Tyranny is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, pith helmet sales, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 26.448 billion Disputed Tyrannyians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 15.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Disputed Tyrannyian economy, worth a remarkable 3,873 trillion pounds 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 a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. 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 impressive 146,475 pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 472,629 per year while the poor average 34,331, a ratio of 13.8 to 1.

A formerly quiet little town is now booming as both a cult centre and a tourist attraction, prison walls have had to be modified to keep parkour-trained criminals from escaping, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, and fine dining is just too fine for most of the populace. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Disputed Tyranny's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Disputed Tyranny is ranked 28,708th in the world and 8th in Mordor for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,980.13 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
