Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Materialistic State of Sturcture is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Max Planck with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.294 billion Comrades are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Entropy. The average income tax rate is 90.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sturcturean economy, worth 924 trillion Photons a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 126,719 Photons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Taking hostages is a great way to influence government policy, weird or unusual crimes merit cruel and unusual punishments, the diplomatic corps tends to open negotiations by insulting all the foreigners in the room, and journalists giggle uncontrollably while reporting the nation's drug bonfires. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sturcture's national animal is the Two-Headed Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Entropy.

Sturcture is ranked 13,431st in the world and 341st in the Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 2,156.53 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
