The Dictatorship of Parkist Korea is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Park Chung Hee and Kim Fatty I with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.13 billion Parkiites are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, 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 Parkyyang. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 56.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Parkist economy, worth 751 trillion Hees a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 240,244 Hees, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,000,354 per year while the poor average 37,716, a ratio of 26.5 to 1.

Powerful x-ray machines used by the Customs Department can see into the homes of nearby residents, pet owners make sure their dogs wear diapers, parents are relieved they no longer need to help with their kids' algebra homework, and artists regularly face criminal charges and art-burning parties are common. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Parkist Korea's national animal is the Reindeer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Haruhiism - SOS Brigade.

Parkist Korea is ranked 219,231st in the world and 28th in SOS Brigade for Most Secular, with 0.99 Atheism Rate.
