The Botched Pejazzle of the Studly Spud

The Half-Baked Abrogation of The Botched Pejazzle of the Studly Spud is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Studly Spud with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, anti-smoking policies, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.168 billion Monster Mash are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Spudtopia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 17.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Mashed economy, worth a remarkable 1,513 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 extensive. Average income is an amazing 292,809 Chips, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,080,273 per year while the poor average 56,004, a ratio of 19.3 to 1.

Human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants, commemorative mugs remembering last year's Black Friday Crockery Riots are a best seller this year, it's not just poseurs who wear oversized sound-cancelling headphones as they walk the city streets, and wildlife near farms is slowly becoming extinct. 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 161,270th in the world and 282nd in Spiritus for Most Devout, with 2.11 Prayers Per Hour.
