Spode Humbled Minions

The Topian of Spode Humbled Minions is a colossal, cultured nation, notable for its digital currency, complete lack of prisons, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, cheerful population of 8.847 billion derp are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The minute government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cairo. The average income tax rate is 1.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving derp economy, worth a remarkable 1,550 trillion derpfunds 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 large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. 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 an impressive 175,216 derpfunds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is flooded with compensation requests, blind students are at a disadvantage now that test papers printed in braille have been discontinued, politicians bribe ten-year-old geniuses to sit their aptitude tests, and the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Spode Humbled Minions's national animal is the sharkderp, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Rakeoian Paganism.

Spode Humbled Minions is ranked 205,977th in the world and 134th in The League of Conservative Nations for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -12.07 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
