Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Explosive Minister of Kaboomlandia is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by King Wulfric II with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7 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 receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kolra. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 62.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Kaboomlandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,036 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 290,919 Endorsements, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,151,629 per year while the poor average 49,692, a ratio of 23.2 to 1.

People say that smog must be good for you because of its healthy green colour, titles of nobility are packaged with Kaboomlandian citizenship in invite-only auctions, no-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium, and at the edge of the final frontier space's biggest missile platform is about to unfold. 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 343rd in the world and 1st in Europeia for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 36,210.83 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
