Morbid Mind

The Republic of Morbid Mind is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, zero percent divorce rate, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.296 billion Morbid Mindians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 39.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Morbid Mindian economy, worth 155 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 47,122 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Women who can do math in their head are burned for witchcraft, the national census includes an opt-in to join the government-run dating service, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, and the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Morbid Mind's national animal is the parrot, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Morbid Mind is ranked 93,183rd in the world and 1,561st in Artificial Solar System for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 1,024.72 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
