Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United Federation of Plisskenstan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Albert Gallatin with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, strictly enforced bedtime, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful population of 21.148 billion Plisskenstanians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The minute, liberal government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thingamageek. Income tax is unheard of.

The all-consuming Plisskenstanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,949 trillion Sponks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 186,770 Sponks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government merely sends empty platitudes whenever natural disasters strike foreign nations, unruly families are deliberately marooned on desert islands, stoned tourists don't tend to remember much about their holidays here, and centuries-old legal documents detailing agnatic-cognatic gavelkind succession are being dusted off again. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Plisskenstan's national animal is the Chupacabra, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Plisskenstan is ranked 1,042nd in the world and 24th in Capitalist Paradise for Highest Crime Rates, with 52.04 Crimes Per Hour.
