King Koopa

Population512 million

CapitalKoopa City

The Republic of King Koopa is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and enforced nudity. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 512 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, Defense, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Koopa City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 23.5%.

The King Koopan economy, worth 28.0 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 54,644 American Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 160,337 per year while the poor average 14,680, a ratio of 10.9 to 1.

Arthritic surgeons with tremulous fingers reassure patients that they are in safe hands, 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", and sea side cafes are required by law to close during summer. 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 134,226th in the world and 5,577th in the South Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -6.45 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
