The Economy of Us

The United Kingdom of The Economy of Us is a small, efficient nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 26 million Economy of Usians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.3%.

The thriving Economy of Usian economy, worth 1.67 trillion Golds 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, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. Average income is 64,252 Golds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 219,469 per year while the poor average 13,836, a ratio of 15.9 to 1.

The population's jaw muscles put sharks to shame, it is illegal to have the wrong clock time showing on your microwave oven, families returning from international vacations are unable to get their children back into the country, and an increasingly villainous series of sports coaches are demanding the national mascot's true identity. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Economy of Us's national animal is the Pig, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Economy of Us is ranked 200,715th in the world and 8th in The Arenian Republic for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 22.14 Tourists Per Hour.
