The Botched Pejazzle of the Studly Spud

The Half-Baked Abrogation of The Botched Pejazzle of the Studly Spud is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Studly Spud with an even hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, smutty television, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 4.248 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, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Spudtopia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Mashed economy, worth a remarkable 1,069 trillion Chips a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 251,724 Chips, with the richest citizens earning 9.8 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless, Studly Spud tells rebellious ministers to "drop and give me twenty", drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, and healthcare workers are flummoxed over the spike in foreign tourists with sudden-onset heart disease. 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 18,596th in the world and 69th in Spiritus for Most Influential, scoring 1,336 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
