The High and Papal Parky of Parkguiness

Population147 million


The Theocracy of The High and Papal Parky of Parkguiness is a very large, orderly nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 147 million Penguins are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 72.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Penguin economy, worth 3.52 trillion fish a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 23,912 fish, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dictionary sales have hit an all-time high, polygamy is legal, women find themselves saying "my eyes are up here" more often than they used to, and gossip magazines have been replaced by mask catalogs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The High and Papal Parky of Parkguiness's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The High and Papal Parky of Parkguiness is ranked 70,430th in the world and 2,930th in the South Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,446.77 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
