Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Jobless Slacker of Kaboomlandia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King Wulfric II with an iron fist, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, anti-smoking policies, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.361 billion Kaboomlandians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kolra. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 65.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Kaboomlandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,196 trillion Endorsements a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is an amazing 298,446 Endorsements, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,115,422 per year while the poor average 55,927, a ratio of 19.9 to 1.

The Foreign Ministry thinks an eye for an eye is a blindingly good idea, dessert dishes make up the Kaboomlandian breakfast menu, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, and the people consider response to rudeness to be an acceptable casus belli. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Kaboomlandia's national animal is the Black-Capped Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Scientology.

Kaboomlandia is ranked 2,822nd in the world and 24th in Europeia for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 16,763.67 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
