The Chariot

Population6.29 billion



The Waste of The Chariot is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by waste with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, complete lack of prisons, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 6.29 billion wastes are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of waste. The average income tax rate is 3.9%.

The frighteningly efficient waste economy, worth 899 trillion wastes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 142,935 wastes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Young soldiers are shocked to discover there are no 'safe spaces' on a battlefield, the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, and drivers regularly pull over for nonexistent police cars. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Chariot's national animal is the waste, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is waste.

The Chariot is ranked 11,072nd in the world and 5th in Lily for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 29,119.27 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
