Spode Humbled Minions

Population6.874 billion



The Topian of Spode Humbled Minions is a colossal, genial nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.874 billion derp enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cairo. The average income tax rate is 99.6%.

The frighteningly efficient derp economy, worth a remarkable 1,648 trillion derpfunds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 239,889 derpfunds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, coconut-half banging former royals skip around the countryside seeking gullible peasants to rule, and military pilots spend more time scraping feathers off their engines than flying their aircraft. Crime is totally unknown. Spode Humbled Minions's national animal is the sharkderp, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Spode Humbled Minions is ranked 7,626th in the world and 10th in The League of Conservative Nations for Highest Economic Output, with 1,648 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
