Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of King Rankmore is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Rankmore with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 13.044 billion King Rankmoreans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of KingRankopolis. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient King Rankmorean economy, worth a remarkable 3,624 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 277,840 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new 'Who Wants To Be A Politician' election debate auditions are more popular than the debates themselves, the government has ordered a moratorium on referenda, KingRankopolis spends billions upgrading public transport, and businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. King Rankmore's national animal is the Red Back Spider, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Cricket.

King Rankmore is ranked 151,126th in the world and 39th in Australia for Fattest Citizens, with 1.66 Obesity Rate.
