Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federation of Plak is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Admiralissimo Bennett with an iron fist, and notable for its vat-grown people, free-roaming dinosaurs, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.462 billion Plaks are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Administration, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dystopia. The average income tax rate is 31.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Plakian economy, worth 269 trillion zealies a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Information Technology, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 184,282 zealies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Newspapers may not print any negative stories about the government, tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, barges of dissidents are being "reeducated through water therapy" in the South Zebra Sea, and Plaks are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks. Crime is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Plak's national animal is the Zebra, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Plak is ranked 1,950th in the world and 88th in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 19,114.06 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
