Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Democratic Republic of Pomplamouse is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Grandiose Grand Pomplamouse Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 12.299 billion Pomplamouseans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Soda Fountain. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 76.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Pomplamousean economy, worth a remarkable 2,427 trillion Balls a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 197,389 Balls, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

Advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references, people who have had childhood imaginary friends are told they can't ever be trusted with guns, prison libraries are being replaced with interrogation chambers, and edutainment video games are taking Pomplamouse's students to the next level. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Pomplamouse's national animal is the Honey Badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pomplamouse is ranked 85,889th in the world and 2,521st in Balder for Most Extreme, scoring 15.98 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
