Takaram Ungol

Population1.2 billion


The Republic of Takaram Ungol is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, ban on automobiles, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.2 billion Takaram Ungolians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 40.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Takaram Ungolian economy, worth 35.1 trillion Takrams a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 29,209 Takrams, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children are sent to either religious or secular schools, 50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, and cricket farmers use magnifying glasses to fit every member of their herd with tiny tracking tags. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Takaram Ungol's national animal is the Kryntile, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Takaram Ungol is ranked 86,868th in the world and 8th in Iran for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 211.02 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
