Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Rogue Nation of Kezzastan is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its parental licensing program, otherworldly petting zoo, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 1.879 billion Kezzastanians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Kezzastanian economy, worth 362 trillion Kezzes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 192,803 Kezzes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, machine-peeled candied grapes come in individual packaging for the busy commuter, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, and drill sergeants yell in the ears of bespectacled nerds in cybermilitary "reboot camps". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kezzastan's national animal is the Forest Elk, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kezzastan is ranked 7,669th in the world and 25th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
