The Mango Mega Corporation of Fruitful is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 934 million Fruitfuls are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Welfare and Law & Order not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mangzilia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Fruitful economy, worth 148 trillion MangoCoin™s a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 158,932 MangoCoin™s, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 857,463 per year while the poor average 15,286, a ratio of 56.1 to 1.

Children often explain to their parents that the Mega Ultimate Sword Fist was worth the thousand-MangoCoin™ charge on their phone bill, the nation is so apathetic that Fruitfuls can barely find the energy to bring new issues to the government, Leader has been seen stealthily slicing fifths off bread loaves, and Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Fruitful's national animal is the Kardashian, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Fruitful is ranked 150,099th in the world and 591st in Europeia for Largest Governments, scoring 10.25 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
