Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of King Rankmore is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by King Rankmore with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, otherworldly petting zoo, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 12.527 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 3,451 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 significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 275,506 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Atheists on vacation find Cricket's scriptures make useful doorstops, politicians accepting drinks in bars are executed for taking bribes, motorists' locations are constantly tracked by intelligence and law enforcement agencies, and sexually-starved male dinosaurs terrorise tourists during weekly breakouts from Mesozoic Park. 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 179,999th in the world and 49th in Australia for Most Avoided, scoring 0.18 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
