Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Interactive Community of Paradox is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by His Majesty Johan Andersson with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of public education, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 11.473 billion Paradoxians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, pro-business government prioritizes Spirituality, with Defense, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Healthcare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Johan's Burg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.0%.

The very strong Paradoxian economy, worth 272 trillion Paradox Points a year, is quite specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Gambling, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 23,725 Paradox Points, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 230,034 per year while the poor average 118, a ratio of 1,948 to 1.

Scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation, citizens must pay to enjoy Paradox's pristine beaches, and His Majesty Johan Andersson has just been declared ruler of Paradox in an international press conference. Crime is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Paradox's national animal is the Platypus, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Paradox is ranked 127,902nd in the world and 12th in Paradoxia for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring zero on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
