Presumed Dead

Population1.727 billion


The Protectorate of Presumed Dead is a massive, genial nation, notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.727 billion Presumed Deadians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 14.5%.

The powerhouse Presumed Deadian economy, worth 108 trillion kronor a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Trout Farming. Average income is 62,717 kronor, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 327,867 per year while the poor average 6,445, a ratio of 50.9 to 1.

Engine room hooch is the drink of choice among the nation's navy, sexually-starved male dinosaurs terrorise tourists during weekly breakouts from Mesozoic Park, government police forces protect public schools from the threat of protest, and heavily-laden pregnant women are told they can manage. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force. Presumed Dead's national animal is the parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Presumed Dead is ranked 199,492nd in the world and 4,476th in Artificial Solar System for Most Primitive, scoring -108.33 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
