Side With The Seeds

Population914 million

Currencysky blue sky

The Sky Blue Sky of Side With The Seeds is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical, devout population of 914 million Side With The Seedsians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 67.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Side With The Seedsian economy, worth 81.1 trillion sky blue skies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 88,711 sky blue skies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Polygamy is legal, ersatz chicken has left the nation's citizens with a bad taste in their mouths, money can't buy happiness but it can buy immunity to prosecution, and Leader has just been declared ruler of Side With The Seeds in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Side With The Seeds's national animal is the light, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Side With The Seeds is ranked 130,222nd in the world and 2,613th in Artificial Solar System for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,060.3 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
