The Comedian

The Bitter and Disturbed Irony of The Comedian is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by a madman with an iron fist, and notable for its digital currency, ritual sacrifices, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 26.22 billion poor bastards 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 minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of smoking ruins. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Comedianian economy, worth an astonishing 12,020 trillion bullets a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 458,429 bullets, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,962,390 per year while the poor average 8,666, a ratio of 457 to 1.

TC-SPAN features senators wrestling with ever-increasing production elements, crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, the newly revamped army is so eager for action that it has trouble keeping the peace, and almost all of The Comedian's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. The Comedian's national animal is the criminal, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is nihilism.

The Comedian is ranked 18,777th in the world and 8th in Yggdrasil for Highest Drug Use, scoring 112.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
