The Botched Pejazzle of the Studly Spud

The Half-Baked Abrogation of The Botched Pejazzle of the Studly Spud is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Studly Spud with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.254 billion Monster Mash enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

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 38.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Mashed economy, worth a remarkable 2,119 trillion Chips a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 338,925 Chips, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

The Botched Pejazzle of the Studly Spud successfully hosted the Spiritus Olympics, Studly Spud's exquisite office door is replaced monthly due to angry petitioners, an IT mega-corporation has a patent pending on the rectangle, and voting is voluntary. 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Spudlyism.

The Botched Pejazzle of the Studly Spud is ranked 6,166th in the world and 16th in Spiritus for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
