Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Dictatorship of Overdosed crackheads is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Elrod the love god with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 20.743 billion Overdosed crackheadsians 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 minute, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crack Central. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Overdosed crackheadsian economy, worth a remarkable 9,716 trillion rocks 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. 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 an amazing 468,412 rocks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,030,461 per year while the poor average 68,617, a ratio of 29.6 to 1.

Exam halls are littered with used needles and empty pill bottles, assault rifles sized for 7-year-olds are a frighteningly popular export, recent events in Dàguó have been classified 'for Elrod the love god's eyes only', and cheap and tasteless vegetables flood the markets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Overdosed crackheads's national animal is the worm, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Obey Elrod.

Overdosed crackheads is ranked 151,765th in the world and 6,116th in the Pacific for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 5.54 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
