The Botched Pejazzle of the Studly Spud

The Half-Baked Abrogation of The Botched Pejazzle of the Studly Spud is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Studly Spud with an even hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 8.119 billion Monster Mash are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Spudtopia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 49.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Mashed economy, worth a remarkable 3,299 trillion Chips a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 406,372 Chips, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,351,754 per year while the poor average 33,426, a ratio of 70.4 to 1.

It is a common belief that a sport isn't sport if there are no decapitations, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, self-driving cars occasionally mow down pedestrians to avoid inconveniencing passengers, and the nation is noticeably more cheerful on Tuesdays. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Botched Pejazzle of the Studly Spud's national animal is the Spudazzle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Spudlyism.

The Botched Pejazzle of the Studly Spud is ranked 1,629th in the world and 2nd in Spiritus for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 203,998.75 Standard Monetary Units.
