Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Shroom Empire of New Mushroom Kingdom is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Kid-Emperor Napoleon II with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, parental licensing program, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 15.241 billion Mushrooms 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Toad Town. The average income tax rate is 81.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Mushroomian economy, worth a remarkable 2,290 trillion mushroom coins a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 150,259 mushroom coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

A firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away, dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming, people say that smog must be good for you because of its healthy green colour, and scientists are researching the best way to kill off humanity to prevent catastrophic war. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Mushroom Kingdom's national animal is the mushroom, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is a major religion.

New Mushroom Kingdom is ranked 23,283rd in the world and 1st in Vissella for Most Extreme, scoring 28.54 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
