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 a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 9.155 billion Monster Mash are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 50.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Mashed economy, worth a remarkable 3,801 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 415,264 Chips, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,605,850 per year while the poor average 73,687, a ratio of 21.8 to 1.

It's always rabbit season, the government loves seeing the little people fight, autocrats are persona non grata, and the population's jaw muscles put sharks to shame. 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 625th in the world and 2nd in Spiritus for Highest Average Incomes, with 415,264.77 Standard Monetary Units.
