The Oppressed Peoples of Kuddles is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its infamous sell-swords, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 430 million Kuddlesians 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 enormous, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 56.3%.
The very strong Kuddlesian economy, worth 20.8 trillion Shinies a year, is quite specialized and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 48,377 Shinies, with the richest citizens earning 8.3 times as much as the poorest.
Dictionary sales have hit an all-time high, the standard police uniform now comes with several colours of belt, the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, and the media have begun calling the government treasury "Leader's stash". Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kuddles's national animal is the Vampire, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
