Morty Rick

Population2.017 billion


The Most Serene Republic of Morty Rick is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.017 billion Morties are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 68.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Mortian economy, worth 71.6 trillion schmeckles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 35,519 schmeckles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Legitimate job descriptions now include "smiling and waving", major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, Morty Rick is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, and government-funded marriage counseling is showing very limited success. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Morty Rick's national animal is the morty, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Morty Rick is ranked 54,272nd in the world and 2nd in Old Zealand for Most Secular, with 26.34 Atheism Rate.
