King Koopa

Population834 million

The Republic of King Koopa is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and enforced nudity. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 834 million Koopa Troops 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, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Welfare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Koopa City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 23.6%.

The King Koopan economy, worth 45.5 trillion American Dollars a year, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 54,557 American Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 160,083 per year while the poor average 14,657, a ratio of 10.9 to 1.

Citizens try to ignore gruesome pictures of decaying teeth printed on their soda cans, the media have begun calling the government treasury "Leader's stash", sea side cafes are required by law to close during summer, and all artwork is carefully screened for offensive material. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. King Koopa's national animal is the Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

King Koopa is ranked 140,180th in the world and 5,932nd in the South Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -4.38 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
