Great Korean Empire

Population12.348 billion



The Kiwi State of Great Korean Empire is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by KiwiLord with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, sprawling nuclear power plants, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 12.348 billion Kiwis 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kiwitopia. The average income tax rate is 91.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Kiwi economy, worth a remarkable 1,481 trillion Kiwifruits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Retail. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 119,981 Kiwifruits, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

Strip mining of rare earth metals is up while back problems are down, grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them, citizens know not to ask what their country can do for them but what they can do as chained slaves for their country, and a handful of megacorporations own every "craft brewery" in the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Great Korean Empire's national animal is the Kiwibird, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Great Korean Empire is ranked 167,757th in the world and 191st in Commonwealth of Liberty for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 26.1 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
