Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Evil land of Plan A-Z is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by King Giant Plankton with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, public floggings, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.707 billion Planktonites 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of File Storage of A through Y. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33.5%.

The powerhouse Planktonian economy, worth 562 trillion Dictator coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 207,793 Dictator coins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 943,533 per year while the poor average 28,027, a ratio of 33.7 to 1.

No animal is considered endangered if there's another that looks kind of like it, nihilistic thrill-seekers claim that suicide by roller coaster is the ultimate life experience, court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, and administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Plan A-Z's national animal is the File, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The glory of Karen.

Plan A-Z is ranked 39,107th in the world and 1,772nd in Balder for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,664.85 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
