Jianzhou Korea

Population399 million


The Empire of Jianzhou Korea is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 399 million Jianzhou Koreans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 52.4%.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Jianzhou Korean economy, worth 11.4 trillion yuan 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 large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 28,536 yuan, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Daisy chain gangs plant flowers and pick up litter, the nation has always been at war with Bigtopia, policemen regularly conduct midnight raids on closed donut shops to 'collect evidence', and it is now illegal for teens to view any sites except Club Kitten and My Little Donkey. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jianzhou Korea's national animal is the dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Jianzhou Korea is ranked 81,716th in the world and 36th in Psychotic Dictatorships for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 4.6 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
