The Bitter and Disturbed Irony of The Comedian is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by a madman with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, flagrant waste-dumping, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 22.893 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 10,359 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 452,524 bullets, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,045,534 per year while the poor average 61,537, a ratio of 33.2 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 150,824th in the world and 157th in Yggdrasil for Longest Average Lifespans, with 22.64 Years.
