The SQUEEZE THEM ON GME of Moneymakestheworldgoround is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by DeepF-ckingValue with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, compulsory military service, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.016 billion Moneymakestheworldgoroundians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Reddit. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 14.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Moneymakestheworldgoroundian economy, worth a remarkable 1,105 trillion gamestonks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 220,481 gamestonks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,024,672 per year while the poor average 2,505, a ratio of 808 to 1.

In its new More is More campaign the government advertises obese men and women posing coquettishly with baked goods to spare their blushes, children often kick Corporate Birds for amusement, crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens, and virtually all of the country's economic activity takes place in Reddit. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force. Moneymakestheworldgoround's national animal is the Corporate Bird, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Money Worship.

Moneymakestheworldgoround is ranked 265th in the world and 1st in Artificial Solar System for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 808.08 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
