The Botched Pejazzle of the Studly Spud

The Half-Baked Abrogation of The Botched Pejazzle of the Studly Spud is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Studly Spud with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, vat-grown people, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 11.179 billion Monster Mash have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Spudtopia. The average income tax rate is 57.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Mashed economy, worth a remarkable 5,014 trillion Chips a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Retail, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 448,558 Chips, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Vital intelligence-gathering activities are often put on hold for Call of Honor tournaments, Jennifer Government is a bestseller, political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, and cinemas play art-house movies to ever-shrinking audiences as film critics rule the industry. 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 43,095th in the world and 127th in Spiritus for Most Inclusive, scoring 113.52 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
