The Capitalist Consortium of Systemic Corruption is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Chairman Vursht Zamler with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 875 million employees are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, although Defense is also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mammon. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.5%.

The frighteningly efficient neoliberal economy, worth 152 trillion coupons a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 174,645 coupons, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 742,614 per year while the poor average 26,452, a ratio of 28.1 to 1.

Creative compliance measures ensure that high-ranking officials live in luxury while the country's coffers collect cobwebs, people often get liposuction to reduce their air fares, search and rescue forces now accept cheques and all major credit cards, and stockbrokers dream of getting rich by writing textbooks. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Systemic Corruption's national animal is the poor, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Systemic Corruption is ranked 27,266th in the world and 93rd in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Secular, with 40.65 Atheism Rate.
