Sichuan Pepper

Population8.953 billion

CapitalPepper Pot City


The Cunning Plan of Sichuan Pepper is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Wordy with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 8.953 billion Pepperians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pepper Pot City. The average income tax rate is 81.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Sichuan Pepperian economy, worth 660 trillion Peppers a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 73,744 Peppers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mandatory neutering has made purebred dogs a thing of the past, social media sites go into shutdown for days at a time to censor user content, teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries, and Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sichuan Pepper's national animal is the Clown, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Desu.

Sichuan Pepper is ranked 53,921st in the world and 201st in Yggdrasil for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 89.25 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
