The Custodian People

The Federal Republic of The Custodian People is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its frequent executions, zero percent divorce rate, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 240 million Custodians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.6%.

The thriving Custodian economy, worth 17.5 trillion Custodiums a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 73,021 Custodiums, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 233,101 per year while the poor average 17,386, a ratio of 13.4 to 1.

Strange looking men with big red noses are found hiding behind bushes and inside dustbins, school uniforms are compulsory, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, and government officials raid public buildings to remove all mention of G*d or r******n. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. The Custodian People's national animal is the Elephant, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

The Custodian People is ranked 138,118th in the world and 7,770th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 49.01 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
